Loup, Louis Peter

Hastings CemeteryName: Louis Peter Loup

Died on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Died at: 61 Warrior Square, St Leonards

Additional Information: Peter Loup, aged 82, was killed when seven fighter bombers swept into St Leonards strafing with machine gun fire and dropping HE bombs on Warrior Square, West Hill, St Leonards, Quarry Hill and De Cham Road. 23 people were killed in the attack, with 43 other wounded, 21 seriously.

Louis was married to Mary Maud Loup, who also died in the attack. They lived at 61 Warrior Square.

I was unable to locate Louis’s grave marker in the main area of WW2 war graves, so he is likely buried else where on site. I will look to find it when I revisit Hastings Cemetery.
