Currently my research focuses on the units involved in the side of the 51 Highland Division between the Somme River and Bresle.
I read several books and documents in order to integrate information
In September I will take contact with the mayor of Incheville to see if the town has other infformations

I live with my family Flixecourt and during weekends and holidays to Dargnies.
The photos of Incheville be made this week and posted as soon.

I look forward to reading any new updates in your research including the photos of Incheville.

Good luck with your meeting with the Mayor.

Welcome back Jericho,
Look in the "Roll of Honour & Remembrance" section at my posting for "Kendal Border Regiment Roll of Honour" - this includes the names of the Kendal men who died in and near Incheville in 1940. We have completed the book which will be dedicated in November during the Remembrance Sunday service in Kendal Parish church and placed in the regimental chapel.
The May 1940 diaries are very interesting, and I wondered if you also have the diaries for the beginning of June, the time of the Incheville fighting? - I'm assuming that either that they were lost, damaged, or destroyed when the company was captured, or that perhaps they were not written ( a bit busy I guess!)

Best Wishes, Paul.

Hi everyone,

below, a photo found on the net, or it is likely that men are the 4th Border.
Indeed, one can notice that the truck identification plate with the number 53 are trucks 4th Border.
The question is what can be used on the left arm cuff men??

If he was in D Company, that was the Kendal based company who were at Incheville.
From my previous posting - " Kendal was dubbed "The Town of Missing Men" after Kendal's territorial soldiers from D Company 4th Border were taken prisoner or killed at Incheville in 1940 on the Dunkirk rearguard."
Take a look at these postings; viewtopic.php?f=105&t=1820
About two thirds of the way down the postings list ( after the massive block of text!)there is a photo of returned Prisoner of War from D company being given a Civic reception in Kendal Town Hall. Perhaps his face is somewhere in the group? - Did he have a connection with Kendal/Windermere or South Lakeland ? (home of the D company men)
