Mr. BOURGEOIS during his first visit to the Beaulieu site in the late 1970's

After the war, he was one of the first to have an interest in the collection of military objects, local history and, of course, everything that came close to the flying bomb V1 !

He contributed in particular to the Abbot DUFOUR's book " L’enfer des V1 en Seine-Maritime " and now we can rely on him for his presence, his advice and especially his memories and his kindness.
