This plaque is to commemorate
P.F.C. Clifford Maughan
who parachuted into the garden of this
house at approximately 01.45 hours
on the morning of 6th June 1944
He was taken prisoner by a German soldier
billeted in this house, who then in turn
surrendered to him. P.F.C. Maughan went
on to fight in Normandy, Holland and to
survive the war.

This is also to perpetuate the memory of
all the other men of the 2nd Platoon,
Mortar Squad of F. Company 505 PIR,

to change the course of history.
