1944 - The Bombing of Le Havre

Recommended Posts

Very interesting LHC, but sad too of course.

It took me a while to realise that Knapp (the historian) was British.  His French was really good, but with an accent !

My father-in-law left France (in a hurry!) in 1940 via Le Havre - he was in the RAF based near Reims.  He didn’t return for 50 years.

We had an hour or two to wander round Le Havre back in 1995 and went into the church where the scars of the attack are still visible on the fabric.
