Title:Thanksgiving service in the Cambrai Cathedral for the deliverance of the Town

Permanent URL:digital.nls.uk/74549224

Description:Troops at prayer in Cambrai Cathedral, France, during World War I. Allied troops kneeling at prayer in Cambrai Cathedral. The abbĂ©, or abbot, and his fellow churchmen are kneeling in the front row: their black vestments blend into the dark wood round the altar, making them more difficult to spot. The altar seems largely unscathed by the shelling that was inflicted on Cambrai, but the broken chairs in the foreground of the photograph indicate that other parts of the cathedral were affected. Cambrai was delivered from German occupation by the Allies after several days of fierce fighting that began on October 8th 1918. [Original reads: ‘On Sunday October 13th 1918, the abbe THUILLIEZ of Cambrai who stayed with a sick woman although threatened to be shot if he did so, held a thanksgiving service in the Cambrai Cathedral for the deliverance of the Town. Also prayers were offered for those who fell during the taking of the town. Civilians who remained in the town cellars and who came out when the Canadians entered are seen in front row left of photograph.’]
