Cimetière de Montrouge

Cimetière de Montrouge

The porcelain funerary flowers are probably the work of
Céramiques de France in Béthune with origins in the mid-nineteenth century.
This grave tells the story of a brave aviator Maurice Arnoux (7 September 1895 – 6 June 1940) who was a World War I flying ace credited with five aerial victories. He returned to flying fighter planes during the early days of World War II and died fighting for France.

The high polish of the marble reflects the
words of remembrance and honor.
