The War Illustrated, No. 232, Vol. 10, May 10th 1946

Calais After the Siege: Dauntless in Defeat UNCONQUERABLE IN THEIR SOULS though Calais had fallen, after a fight beyond reason, the last round of ammunition expended, expressions of these British troops (I) marching away to captivity tell the story of their indomitable courage. Equipment of the defenders, including an anti-tank gun (2), lay shattered in the battle-torn streets when the Germans occupied the town on May 26,1949. Burning and smoke-wreathed, the wharves (3) took heavy punishment from relays of dive-bombers. See facing page. PAGE 3 4 Photos. Associated P reit
