RIP Léon Gautier at 100

The newspapers have obituaries for Léon Gautier, a French commando who survived the D-Day landing.

What made me post here is that before the war, he was an apprentice coachbuilder in France and then in the UK. After the war he continued to work in the automotive industry in the UK, France, and the French colonies.

Not an obituary, but it seems to have the best description of his career.
