Saint-Pierre

Charles de Gaulle

Is there any evidence that Charles de Gaulle spent time in St. Pierre during WWII? Someone suggested to me that he left St. Pierre, stayed in the town of Terrenceville, Newfoundland, Canada en route to a warship in Argentia, NL where Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill signed the Atlantic Charter in 1941.

This is a travel website, not a historical research website....

Surely the history of a place is important to tourism!????

I agree that the history of a place is important to tourism. But the way the question in phrased has nothing to do with tourism, rather with historical travel.

No, De Gaulle never came to St Pierre before his 1967 trip. During WW2, it was the Rear-admiral Émile Muselier who came to the islands. More at GrandColombier.co,
