Searching for René Mouchotte
A six year search taking me from Kent to Belgium to Paris and a Tomb in Pére Lachaise Cemetery in which I left a letter. This led to a meeting with his 101 year old sister and the adventure began. Commandant Squadron Leader René Mouchotte died in 1943. I researched, scripted and presented a documentary about this honourable, courageous and dedicated Frenchman the first to command a British Squadron. You will find roads named after him in Paris - the most famous being adjacent to the Gare Montparnasse.
This video covers most of my search. There were more happenings after the transmission. If this stimulates your interest, please look at my latest Blog.
