One thought on “Connect via Chartres

  1. Michel Pellerin

    I have been fortunate enough to visit this great monument several times but I have only recently become aware of the fact that its preservation is in part due to the heroic efforts of an American officer who, at the risk of his own life, prevented it from being shelled during the second world war. Has any thought been given to having a memorial plaque placed in the cathedral to commemorate Colonel Griffiths’ actions? All of us who have been able to visit and who will visit the well preserved cathedral owe him a debt of gratitude. His role should be made known to all who visit this treasure of the ages.
