    Sgt Chef Georges CABIOCHE, Sgt Orso VERGELATTI and Cpl Chef Antoine MARIANI of GRB1/63 were killed when they crashed on take-off from Bamako, Mali, to join the Free French Air Force in the U.K. They initially were buried at Bamako, later exhumed and reinterred in France (Cabioche in Brest; Vergelatti in Vescovato/Corse and Mariani in Marseille.
