Last survivor of French Resistance dies





Highly decorated by both the British and French governments for his work during World War II, Brocard was one of some 100 agents in the Agir (Action) network set up in 1941 by French Colonel Michel Hollard.

Hollard became known as "the man who saved London" for detecting and identifying some 100 launching ramps for V1's in northern France, enabling them to be destroyed by allied bombers.
