No specific information in Footprints in the sand (Clutton-Brock), but they may be listed in 'Mauthausen: The History of a Death Camp' by Evelyn le Chene.

Hello,
I Cannot find on line where the info re the executed men from the St: Nazaire Raid came from ?
However there are refs to some 64 men being killed.
I can only find 63.
Of the 63, five that I cannot find in CWGC site or Geoff's search site.
They are -
Lieutenant R J G Burtenshaw – 5 Commando
Private G Lewis – 2 Commando
Private J McCormack – 2 Commando
Lance-Corporal K Patterson – 2 Commando
Lieutenant T G P Peton – 2 Commando

Anyone know where these men are at rest ?
Thanks
Alex
