French TextAt the age of 20, Jacques Henri Schloesing came to England and joined the RAF within the first squadron of the Free French. He was appointed captain at 23 and took command of the Ile-de-France group. Jumping from his burning plane during the winter of 1943, he was severely burned, and was hidden by the French resistance; later he went to England and resumed the fight. He died on the day of the liberation of Paris.
