    On 4th May 2015 a new memorial was unveiled in St. Peter Port to commemorate "all islanders who committed acts of protest, defiance and resistance during the German Occupation 1940-1945, those who were imprisoned or deported and those who died in captivity
    Charles Machon
    Percy Miller
    Marie Ozanne
    Joseph Gillingham
    Sidney Ashcroft
    Louis Symes
    John Ingrouille

    One other islander died in captivity, but his family requested that he remain anonymous.

    The Tunbridge Wells Family History helped to trace relatives of Sidney Ashcroft to represent him at the unveiling. I can supply details of the findings.
