History:  This event was created during the 50th Anniversary of D-Day Commemoration in France in June 1994 by a group of military personnel.  It is a commemorative military polo match typically between French and American teams.  Both teams in 1994 were led by WWII veterans who played at the time.  The French team was led by an officer on the staff of Gen. Charles de Gaulle.  The American team was led by Maj. George Haas, who was assigned during the war as an aerial observer for artillery.  The match returns to Normandy and the town of Deauville in 2019, with plans to become an annual event on the Normandy D-Day Commemoration calendars.
