STELE HAS THE MEMORY OF THE AMERICAN AIRMEN FALLEN ON THE GROUND OF FRANCE ON JANUARY 29TH, 1944.
January 29th, 1944, little before noon(south), American squadron coming back from a bombardment on Frankfurt was taken for target by the German anti-aircraft defence. One of the planes, B17 was got(touched). He(it) crashed on the territory of the municipality of Busigny near the farm of Hermitage setting fire to stables. The fortress 6 counted ten men(people) of crew(equipage), four airmen died to Busigny, trapped of their device. On six survivors, four were stopped(arrested) and two were able to escape and get back their base thanks to the competition(help) of Resistance fighters and brave French families. Colonel Richardson wanted to offer a plate(patch) to honor the memory of these companions(journeymen) tragically disappeared in the crash of their B17 half a century earlier. These airmen were called: John Mac Cullough, Ned Moore, Sidney Mink and Marcellus Weeks.
The municipality of Busigny joined to this duty of memory(report) by building a marble stele near the place or crashed the American fortress. On this monument is fixed the plate(patch) of Colonel Richardson as well as a piece of the plane.
Let us thank all these allied soldiers come fight(dispute) and for someone die on our ground, to free(release) us from the Nazi inhumanity. It was the second time in some decades that our allies helped us to push away(to repel) the same enemy country, which is a friendly country today.
