History Information

The grave of Captain Grey, who was killed by a sniper whilst his tank was hit advancing through nearby Lutain Wood, lies in an isolated piece of ground at a fork in the main road from Caumont to Villers-Bocage in the hamlet of Le Repas. As both the family of the officer and the inhabitants of Le Repas were emphatic in their desire for Captain Grey's body to remain in the village, it was decided that it should remain there. The grave is marked by a private memorial.
