Le Havre Forts Were Here

THIS is part of the fortress area of Le Havre after the R.A.F.’s 5,000-tons daylight attack. Gun positions and revetments have been obliterated. It was announced last night that so far 7,578 prisoners, including the garrison commander, Colonel Wildermut, have been counted. British casualties were fewer than 500.
