Description

Corsica, France. May 1944. RAAF Public Relations correspondent, Flight Lieutenant S. B Prior (left), climbed thousands of feet to reach this mountain eyrie, a well hidden cave which served as headquarters for the Corsican patriots who actively resisted the German invader during the enemy occupation. With him are "Leoni" (centre) and "Wolf" (right) two ringleaders of the partiot gang which proved such a thorn in the Germans side.
