    Years ago I read a thread on this or another forum which documented a number of summary executions of French or Belgian civilians by British Army soldiers in 1940. Two instances submitted by "Sheldrake" indicate two such executions committed by the Northamptonshire regiment and one by one of the Guards regiments. I believe there were others.

    Can anyone identify the thread? Or otherwise contribute to this topic? I do not believe these incidents were widespread but I seem to remember there were several.
