On a quiet crossroads between Martizay and Yzeures-sur-Creuse stands this small war memorial to three members of the Maquis (French Resistance.
Roger STAUBB, Jacques PISTRE and Raymond THOMAS were killed in combat on the 29th of August 1944. This was 4 days after the liberation of Paris, and the day of the American Victory parade down the Champs Elysees (the French liberation parade was on the 26th of August).
I can't find any details of what happened on a quiet road in rural France 4 days after the Germans in Paris surrendered, but I suspect that the proximity of the railway crossing may play a part.
Si vous savez n'importe quoi à propos de ce mémorial svp faites-nous savoir.
