A SECRET WW2 initiative, generously funded by the Gerry Holdsworth Special Forces Charitable Trust.

Grateful thanks to: Gordon and Jackie Rees for agreeing to host the plaque; Lt-Commander Mathieu Kuhn of the French Navy (representing the Embassy of France); Nikki Bennett, (daughter of André Hue), the Bennett family and friends including Lt-Colonel (ret’d) Ewan Southby-Tailyour. It would not have been possible without our helpers on the day – Carol Browne, Ian Titman and Joy Hanauer –  and a big pat on the back to Trevor Butterworth, long-term subscribed Friend of SECRET WW2, from whom the project originated.
