Thomas Micklethwaite – French Hero

Thomas Micklethwaite was born in 1895 in Doncaster. He joined up for WW1 and, according to his service records, ended up in the Railway Operating Department. After the end of WW1, he went back to France and married Germaine, who he’d met during the war and lived in St Valery sur Somme, near Abbeville.


I understand that during WW2, Thomas helped the French Resistance, hiding people in a mausoleum, and was honoured by General de Gaulle. Any further information on his war-time activities would be gratefully received, especially by his relatives – can you help?
