The storming of Le Quesnoy by New Zealand troops, World War I, 4 November 1918. One of the most gallant feats of the closing days of the Great War. The brick rampart was crowned with German machine-guns, but the New Zealanders managed to bring up a 30 ft ladder, and ascended in single file amid a hail of bullets, soon driving the enemy down the reverse slope of the bastion and capturing the town. Illustration for The Wonder Book of Soldiers (Ward Lock, c 1920).
