More about Ronald Maude

Here is the information I received from my friend John Hook about Ronald Maude (called Ronnie by his friends).
I hope John will add more comments to this later on.

"He was 21 when he was shot down. It was immediately after D Day when the allies were busy landing on the Normandy beaches and the RAF etc were bombing and flying in, trying to break the German forces in land and make the landings safer and more successful. Apparently the village of Giverny was glad to look after their graves and kept that propeller hidden for many years until, relatively recently, they made a monument out of it."
