Resistance fighter René Duclos’s PTT jacket now belongs to the museum

by | 25 Aug 2020 | historics-collectibles

In 2020, the Normandy Victory Museum received a donation of a priceless piece of history: the jacket of a PTT agent who worked as a courier for the SNCF in the 1940s. More than just an outfit, it’s the jacket that belonged to René Duclos, a member of the Centurie-OCM (Organisation Civile et Militaire) network in the French Resistance. It has been added to our collection on the Resistance in La Manche.
