Summary
On the 22nd of May 1940 Alec Jay arrived in Calais with his Battalion, the Queen Victoria Rifles. After four days of intense fighting, he was taken prisoner of war along with those of his colleagues who were not killed. The Calais Garrison was not evacuated and his situation as a POW was exceptionally perilous as he was a Jew. Made to wear distinctive clothing, he was all too aware of the Nazis determination to eradicate his race. In 'Facing Fearful Odds', John Jay has reconstructed his father's war using the archive material from four countries and numerous other sources and POW accounts
