About us

We’re an association based at Anglet (between Bayonne and Biarritz) formed with the aim of remembering those men and women of the Comet Line in the Basque region who gave so much in the cause of repatriating Allied aircrew and others during WWII.

Our major event each year is the annual Comet commemoration which is held over a long weekend every September. Ceremonies of remembrance are held and we retrace the actual routes taken by the guides and the evaders from occupied France, across the Pyrenees and into Spain.
