Exact spot where the B25 Mitchell crashed. Isolated spot in the middle of the woods, an explanatory panel, and a stele on which walkers have deposited parts and pieces of the plane as a sign of respect.

Lieutenant Rochette, Lieutenant Debu, Adjudant Gibert, Sergeant Brabant.

Based in Great Britain, the Groupe Lorraine, aviation de la France libre, took part in liberation operations.

OnJuly 30, 1944 at 00:15, a B 25 Mitchell night bomber, from the Lorraine Group, flew over the Valcongrain-Hamars forest.

It is shot down by the German DCA as it passes over Hamars heading south.

The plane, in flames, crashes against the hillside.

In the explosion of the plane, the four crewmen perish.
