Three crosses from the Buffalo.

A very special event will be held this Saturday, 22 April, at the Buffalo memorial along Buffalo Beach. Essentially three small wooden crosses have been made from timbers of HMS Buffalo and these will be sent to Canada for presentation to descendants of Francois Prieur (political prisoner) on Patriot’s Day (May 22) – Francois was a prisoner who was transported on the Buffalo. More next issue of The Informer,

Caption: Francois Prieur. His wish was to have a small cross made from the timbers of the Buffalo.
