The Royal Air Force Association’s Île-de-France branch has paid tribute to the late Geneviève Camus, who, as a Second World War French Resistance member, helped more than 140 Allied airmen to evade German capture.
Geneviève (99), an RAF Association member for many years, was made a Member of the British Empire (MBE) in 1946, and was later awarded the USA’s Medal of Freedom with Silver Palm, and France’s Officier de la Légion d’honneur.
The branch’s Membership Secretary, Michael Close, who attended Geneviève’s Paris funeral said: “This wonderful lady was held in highest esteem by all those who had the privilege to meet her.”
