Photo: Victor of the Battle of Egypt. Hard on the heels of Rommel's shattered columns, the 8th Army's commander watches the pursuit from his tank turret. Thirty-four years have passed since Bernhard Law Montgomery joined the Royal Warwickshire Regt. as a subaltern. In the last war he served three years on the Western Front; in this he took the 3rd Division to France, and brought it back from Dunkirk. Now he is concerned to see there's no Dunkirk for the Afrika Korps. Photo, British Official; Crown Copyright.
