MONK WHO LED FRENCH NAVY

Admiral Georges Thierry D'Argenlieu, 75, former commander of the Free French Navy, also known as Fr. Louis of the Trinity, died last week its a monastery near Brest. He served in the French Navy during the 1914-18 war and then entered the Carmelite Order, still remaining a reserve officer.

He was called up in the last war when he was provincial of the Carmelites. He was captured by the Germans at Cherbourg in 1940 but escaped and joined Gen. de Gaulle. Soon after the war he was authorised by Pope Pius XII to be appointed French High Commissioner in Indo-China. He returned to his monastery in 1947.
