Thank you for informing about Leonard Godager. His memory is still honored by Veteran Guardsmen from HM Royal Guard on May 8th. every year at the memorial in Trandum Woods. At the same time we also honour another guardsman, Andreas Steinsland taken as a prisoner of war when trying to escape to GBR in 1942. They were both civilians, but as a Guardsman it goes; "Once a Guardman - allways a Guardsman".
Of course we also honour all the other prisoners executed in Trandum Woods, prisoners from GBR, Soviet Union and Norway
Best regards
