I was wondering if anyone can help. I am investigatig a story concerning the death of soldiers (not sure if it is two or three dead) who died when their caterpillar tracked vehicle (not sure if it is a tank or other) rolled over a mine on 29th August 1944. The location where this event took place is locally known as 'La Chapel St Catherine' it is a fresh water spring which is situated smack in the middle of the Forest of Lyons in upper Normandy, it is under the commune of a little village called Lisors and is about 3 Kms away from Lyons La Forêt. and is also situated right next to the abbeye de Mortemer. Now I have two references that proved that this incident took place as I have a photocopy of a letter written in 1945 by Huguette Verhague, a celebrated member of the resistance who helped several allied airmen. There is also a reference to this incident made by a local Forester in his journal.. As a member of the Souvenir Française and the Royal British Legion what I would like to do is to identify these men as there are plans on erecting something in memory of these gentlemen in the area where it happened. Now, we are not sure if they were British or Canadians as both were in the vacinity. I know a Canadian tank was destroyed on August 25th when they entered the villlage of Lisors but I feel that this is not the vehicle I am looking for. There were several British regiments in the area at the time including 53 RECCE, those of the 7th armoured Division, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, 1st Batallion of the Manchester Regiment etc. Of the Canadians I believe there was the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada. Please help me identify these poor unfortunates so that their names can be remebered by generations to come. Attached is a copy of a scan of monsieur Tabouret's entry in his log. I have also have a copy of a letter writen by a local celebrated resistant a Mrs Huguette Verhague. I am unable to sho the letter for copyright reasons.
