Escape report Joseph Williams Matthews
 

British paratrooper Joseph Williams Matthews jumped over Normandy during the night preceding the Normandy invasion. He was wounded upon touching ground and rescued by the French and eventually repatriated to UK.

 

 

 

"I came down on the borders of BLONVILLE (L 4208). I was unconscious for about three hours and on coming to found I could not move owing to severe sprains. I was in this wood without help for seven days when a man heard me call out and took me to a member of the French Resistance (a woman). She took me to the post house and I was treated by a doctor who visited me three times a week for three weeks.

I was in BLONVILLE when L/Cpl PALFREY was brought there."
