1,500 tons more smash on Havre

ALLIES ARE DRIVING INTO BREST

LANCASTERS last night dropped more than 1,500 tons of bombs on Havre after the Germans had rejected the latest surrender ultimatum. At the same time Lancasters and Halifaxes heavily attacked Emden, the nearest haven for German vessels fleeing from the Channel ports.

The Havre raid was the second tremendous attack in two days.

As it went on, and as the British and Canadians stormed the outskirts of Boulogne and Calais, the Germans reported that the Americans have driven into their lines at Brest, the great Brittany port.

HAVRE. – The raid lasted for two hours. Our planes came down below 6,000 ft. and saw buildings fall to pieces.
