70th Brigade Anniversary 1940
Sunday 20th May marked the 78th Anniversary of the disastrous battle of FICHEUX and MERCATEL in Northern France in 1940, in which so many men of 70th Infantry Brigade were killed in action, wounded and captured, facing columns of armoured vehicles from German Panzer Divisions. Over the next year we hope to link their Memorial Pages to the local War Memorials on which they are remembered. We will remember them.
