Stele text:
On April 29, 1944, the Canadian destroyer HMCS Athabaskan was torpedoed off this coast during a naval battle.
Of the 261 Allied sailors, 128 died for the liberation of France and the return to peace.
91 have since been laid to rest in Brittany.
9 are buried in Brignogan.
"In their memory, let us remember that peace and freedom can never be taken for granted".
