The reason for the persistent dropping
of bombs from German aircraft on Dun

Dunkirk hns been the British headquar

but the Germans discovered the fact only
recently. Since their discovery they have

A German biplane flew over Dunkirk
on October IE and dropped two bombs,
One of them fell In the sea. The other,
although it fell on shore, caused no dam

In ordering the taking of Calais, had de
