The Free French at Kingswear

The Free French at Kingswear
By Tony Higgins

This book contains a detailed account of the activities of the 23rd MTB Flotilla (motor torpedo boats), one of several Coastal Forces Flotillas based in Dartmouth and Kingswear during the Second World War. Manned by the Free French navy, the flotilla would cross the Channel at night to attack enemy shipping off the French coast and around the Channel Islands. During their stay, officers and crew formed strong relationships with local people. When the Flotilla finally left Kingswear late in 1944 a tremendous farewell party was organised by local people out of respect and friendship for their French allies.
