A large group of French people from the area around Montcony in Burgundy (where a plane from Linton crashed on October 23rd 1942 and led to the forming of the French resistance in that area) will visit Linton on
Tuesday 6th August 2013.
We are meeting them at the school and then the guardroom of RAF Linton on Ouse when they will go to the Memorial room for an hour, plant a Yorkshire rose at the Main gate and then have English Afternoon Tea in the Officers Mess.
Relatives of some of the airmen from the plane will be travelling to Linton also.
A seedling from the symbolic ‘Resistance tree’ in Montcony’s memorial garden, will be planted in Linton to commemorate the visit.
