French surrender in Lille

Recommended Posts

Lille again! This is a French town close to my heart so apologies if I bore you a bit more with period photos. This is a series of photos taken by a German soldier in May 1940.

These are very small photos so not too clear. This is an interesting shot. The column of prisoners enters the main square in Lille, officers at the front of course.

A close up shows that the French officers at the front of the column, turn to their right, I assume to salute the German officers standing at the left of the photo. The German detachment is also standing to attention.
