Huguette Verhague

Huguette Verhague, born 1901, France. Helped the British Army during the great war of 1914-1918 when her family housed officers in their home at the Abbaye De Mortemer; During the period of 1939-1945 this courageous woman helped crashed airmen on their way to the escape lines whilst her house was surrenunded by a German garrison. She lived until 1961 when she died penniless and blind. Her courage met no bounds and she did everything she could to make sure that her Tommies, candian and Americans were all looked after propperly. One airman, Ron Leverington of 102 squadron who was on board Handley Paige Halifax LW143 DY-O described her is being a wonderful person and named his daughter after her Diane Huguette Leverington.
