Question on St.Valery-en-Caux in June 1940

Post by Kelvin » 17 Jul 2021 14:06

Hello, everyone, When French IX Army Corps ( 2e and 5e DLC, 31e DIAlp and 40e DI and 22e RIC of 5e DIC) with British 51st Highlander infantry division were trapped and captured at St.Valery-en-Caux, I would like to ask if Army Corps units like 11e GRCA and 121e ALCA were also trapped and captured in this pocket ? And any additional French units in this ? Thank

hello

121e RALH mostly captured, 11e GRCA the same
Army Corps elements reaching the south are probably remnants coming from Engineer Signals Medical Train Medical units or the 609e Pionniers
