Abstract: Consider $ 1 \to S \to E \to G \to 1$, where $ G$ is a finite $ p$-group generated by $ {g_i},\;1 \leqslant i \leqslant d$, and $ E$ a free product of cyclic groups $ \langle {g_i}\rangle ,1 \leqslant i \leqslant d$. If $ d$ is the minimum number of generators for $ G$, then we prove that the largest elementary abelian $ p$-quotient $ S/{S'}{S^p}$, regarded as an $ {\mathbb{F}_p}G$-module via conjugation in $ E$, is nonprojective and indecomposable.
