Of a surety the true France is expressed in the smiling and confident bearing of these two Free French warriors who fought most valiantly in the defence of Bir Hacheim. The Free French brigade under General Koenig held out for sixteen days. They destroyed about 70 Axis tanks, inflicted severe losses in men and material on the German and Italian forces, and in night raid, liberated a number of our own men who had been taken prisoner. The garrison of Bir Kacheim was withdrawn on June 10. Photo, British Official: Cnotrn Copyright N O .133 WILL BE PUBLISHED FRIDAY, JULY 42
