On June 7, at around 2pm, the Germans raided Plomeur. Some twenty men, caught in the act of going about their daily business, were apprehended and forced to line up in front of the presbytery in the village. It is claimed that they would have been shot had it not been for the intervention of gendarmes from the Guilvinec brigade. Their lives were saved, but seven of them - René LARNICOL, Laurent LE BEC, Pierre LE BLÉIS, farmers, Antoine CHARLOT, fisherman, Georges GOYAT, blacksmith, Louis TOULEMONT, baker, and François MOULIN, schoolteacher - were held hostage and taken, along with the mayor of Plomeur, to Beuzec-Cap-Caval, where the Germans locked them up in a stable attached to the small Vengam farm. The owner of the premises, Henri POULLÉLAOUEN, tried several times to communicate with the captives, but a sentry kept constant watch outside the door of the premises.
