So to summarise: I think we can safely dismiss the claims of 400 PoW's murdered. I can't help wonder if this a misunderstanding/mix up between the 400 claimed captured by the 6 DLI and what happened to the far fewer PoWs captured (18-20) by 8 DLI and French tanks. Having now read the comments in Harman's book he doesn't claim that 400 were killed. He only mentions a Dunkirk veteran does in his book, Return via Dunkirk by Gun Buster. The book is part fiction and I haven't found the account yet-Personally I think the contents can be ignored purely on the fact that the book has fiction in it and there is no real way of deciding what is made up and what is fact. I will have another look and see if I can find it though. If there was any mistreatment of German PoW's, going by the accounts in John Sadlers book and some of the previous posts it would appear to be in the area that 8 DLI, 7 RTR and a French Armoured unit were fighting. There is still the comment from Sergeant T Hepple, B Company, 7th Royal Tank Regiment about drawing his pistol to keep the DLI soldiers from his PoW. If he is to be believed and I see no reason why not, at least it proves that the 8 DLI ORs weren't happy. I ordered Angus Calder's The Myth of the Blitz last night to see what is mentioned in this book. It would be good to find Brian Bond published essay 'The British Field Army in France and Belgium 1939-1940' to check its content on the subject. I think the French tank unit needs to be identified and if they have a war diary for this period in the French Archives.
