The War Illustrated No 153 Vol 6 April 30th 1943

Yet Another Battle Honour for the 8th Army THE MARETH LINE, so strong by nature and made infinitely stronger by the military art of French (and most recently German) engineers, proved no great obstacle to the 8th Army. On March 29,1943 an announcement from Allied. Headquarters in North Africa said that :"The whole of the strong organized defences of the Mareth position are now in our hands.” Our lower photograph is of a British Bren-carrier passing a shop wellnigh destroyed by shellfire in the village of Mareth. Top, men of the Durham Light Infantry “dug in ”in an anti-tank ditch: a photograph taken in an early phase of the grim battle for Wadi Zigzau. (Seep. 718.) PAGE 708 Photos, British Official
