FRANCE, LA ROCHELLE : The life-size replica of the Hermione, the French navy frigate that shipped General Lafayette to America to rally rebels fighting British troops in the US war of independence, is anchored off the island of Aix on September 11, 2014 before returning to the western French port of La Rochelle after carrying out sea trials. The 65-metre (210 feet) ship, which took 17 years to build, is due to set sail for the United States in April 2015, following the route from the southwestern French port of Rochefort to Boston made by French General Gilbert du Motier — the Marquis de Lafayette — in 1780 to bolster American revolutionaries in their fight against British troops.
