After speaking to Marcus today I realised I hadn't posted any pictures on here of my trip to Dunkirk earlier this year. I posted a link to another site which is no longer online. So seeing as I can't sleep I've posted them on here for your viewing pleasure Leaving Dover first thing with the Castle and radar masts in the distance. First stop Cassel the scene of some bitter house to house fighting by the Ox and Bucks and the Gloucestershire Regiment as they attempted to slow down the advancing Germans. You will see later on in this thread (2nd Trip) some of the devastation that took place in Cassel around the 28th/29th May 1940. The Germans moved into Cassel on the following morning -30th May 1940. Looking from Rue Constant Moeneclaey (D933) in the North West of the town centre towards Rue Du Marechal Foch in the South East of the town centre. One of the most likely approaches taken into Cassel by the Germans. Looking down Rue Du Marechal Foch in the South East of the town centre. The scars of battle are quite evident on some of the buildings to the fighting that took place at Cassel. Many were rebuilt after the war due damage caused by German bombardements. Memorial to the 2nd and 5th Battalions, The Glouchestershire Regiment in Cassel. Memorial to the 4th Battalion Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry in Cassel. From the highest point in Cassel you can clearly see the sort of straight roads leading to Dunkirk that the BEF and French Forces retreated along making easy targets for the Luftwaffe's aircraft to strafe and harrass on their way to the coast. This shot is looking North along the Route De Dunkerque (D916) towards Wormhout (More of Wormhout later). Memorial to Marshal Foch at the top of Cassel. From Cassel we moved on to Wormhout where sadly one of two massacres involving the BEF took place in 1940.
