Old Photographs of the First World War in Pas-de-Calais

Pas-de-Calais is a department in northern France. Its name is the French equivalent of the Strait of Dover, which it borders. The First World War in Pas-de-Calais can be divided into three phases.

From late August 1914 to late October 1914, the Pas-de-Calais witnessed a war of movement: “the great German army advancing towards Paris”, and villages providing support for the mix of French and British troops. “The front developed gradually”, Yves Le Maner goes on to add. The last classic military confrontations took place in early October (Courcelles-le-Comte, Saint-Laurent-Blangy, Lorette etc), and the first battle of Ypres marked a turning-point – the end of the “Race to the Sea”.

  1. Good comment, DT. :->

  2. Designer handbags are expensive, and dropping a few thousand dollars on a single bag new is something that most Vivienne Westwood people aren't willing to do. Usually, we want to have more money in the bag than how much the bag cost itself. This is where counterfeit handbags come in not knockoffs that have a similar design as another more expensive bag, but replicas with another brand's logos and signature embellishments. Knockoffs aren't necessarily illegal, while counterfeit Vivienne Westwood Outlet UK have a much darker history behind them. It is illegal to sell counterfeit or replica bags in the UK.
