Thanks for the information Fitter and Vannetais. I had a great paper back  book about the Resistance in Brittany. Lent it to a friend under strict conditions to return it. She lent it to a friend of hers who beggared back off to Uk with it!!! Damn!!!

Reference the death of the three civilians they were a Father, Mother and daughter, members of the family Le ray who lived in the farm that the Sterling bomber crash into.

Hoping to meet some of you there.

I think the civvies were on the ground-the Stirling had been involved in dropping  supplies for the FFI (French Forces of the Interior) a sort of nom de plume for the resistance in the later stages of the war after D-Day.
