DescriptionBombardment of Damour. Evacuees leaving Damour with their packs and donkeys. Transport has stopped. The town is being shelled by the Navy and allied artillery. Large fires were started. The impression seemed all the more sinister on account of this day of glorious colour and sunshine'. Regarding the place - it is now called Lebanon.
