 SAS MOUSSEY PRINTS

"SAS Operation Loyton" is a set of 6 prints by a local artist from Moussey, Vosges, Eastern France.

These depict the 2nd Special Air Service Regiment who were part of "Operation Loyton" which was harassing the retreating Germans as they headed back towards Strasbourg in the East. The operation ran into serious difficulty when the Germans brought in more divisions to root out the SAS. Many lost their lives and the story is told in the Phantom Memorial Garden at the National Memorial Arboretum and also in the Grove where we have the Moussey Memorial and the Vera Atkins and Women of the Special Operations Executive Memorial.

However the Germans took their revenge of the villagers of Moussey by deporting most of the men and boys to concentration camps for refusing to give away the bases of the SAS troops up in the mountains. This was repeated in many other villages in the Rabodeau Valley. Three soldiers managed to escape from the German onslaught and reached the American Lines and these included Sgt Len Owens of the Royal Signals, Phantom and 2 SAS, who went onto to established the Phantom Memorial Garden in 2003.

Offers are invited for the set, which is a very limited edition and not seen in UK before. These were kindly donated in order that we progress a very special project for the people of Moussey next year.
