Andrée Dumon was a Comète escape line organiser and courier. Despite being arrested, she never provided any information to the Germans.

Whether it was delivering false newspapers or concealing English soldiers, when the Germans invaded Belgium, Andrée Dumon put her life on the line. When you see her as a smiling young woman [in the gallery] it's an incongruous thought.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THIS
Legasee is one of the first consolidated attempts to document the war-time experiences of men and women who have served their country.  While remembrance ceremonies and battle anniversaries are regularly reported on TV,  this coverage rarely focuses on veterans’ personal experiences for more than a few seconds and is of limited value as an educational tool or a record of individual achievement. Legasee aims to cover military life in much more depth by focusing on personal stories and viewpoints. If you think this work is important, please consider a donation. PLEASE DONATE NOW
