    Although the shots list describes Madame Reynal as a "war widow" her husband, Sylvain-Eugene Reynal, didn't in fact die until many years later, in 1939.

    It is instead likely that the reason Monsieur Reynal didn't collect the Legion d'Honneur in person because he was either still a POW at the hands of the Germans, or was receiving treatment for the injuries he'd received in battle.
