This, in honour of our Canadian and American liberators.
The plaque can be seen in downtown Menton, the French city closest to the Italian border, hence one of the last to be liberated.
It seems appropriate to post this some time before the Canadian and American Thanksgiving holidays, so we can all remember those 66 who lost their lives to save us.

Catherine,

Does the memorial list the names of the 66 who lost their lives? If so, possibly you record their names to this thread?

Sorry, they are not listed on the monument or anywhere nearby - If I can find them, I'll add them to the thread. I'll do my best, and check with the local Musée de la Résistance, they know almost everything about the period.
