If you have been doing some reading recently then here's something you may wish to add to your list. A Kindle version of the bilingual book "Fo Sgail a Swastika: Under the Shadow of the Swastika" is available on Amazon here. Donald J MacDonald's account of the the surrender and the subsequent years of captivity is a remarkable read and a tribute in itself to all those who gave their lives at St Valery.More pictures of St Valery here.
