Léon Gautier was one of the Commandos who served under Philippe Kieffer of the Free French Forces and he was one of the very first of the Allied troops to land on D-Day. 
Although they took their immediate objectives in a matter of hours, Kieffer’s Commandos endured 78 days with out relief in the Normandy campaign.  Of the total 177 who started out, only 24 were not injured.
