Some of the houses are wrecked but a German cinema for the troops is still intact. In Valenciennes itself (this section is tinted mauve) men of the Canadian Corps pass the rubble of the station. A dead German lies in a doorway. Wagons of the Canadian 4th Infantry Works Company (note formation sign) move through. The Canadians inspect a dead German laid out in the street.
