    front, top : LA RELÈVE continue! 3 IL EN RESTE... RELEVEZ LES! [The relief continues! 3 There are some left...relieve them]
    front, lower center : Ils sont encore nombreux là-bas, et la France les attend avec une naturelle et légitime impatience. Leur présence est indispensable chez nous, car ils représentent les forces vives de notre pays. Ouvriers, qui partez librement pour l'Allemagne, regardez ces hommes que vous croisez sur la route. Ils vous doivent leur liberté, ils ne l'oublieront jamais. La reconnaissance de la Nation toute entière monte vers vous. Ces ouvriers qui partent me permettront de mieux défendre les intérêts de notre pays. La fraternité - qui ne fut souvent qu'un grand mot - se traduit ici par une émouvante réalité. P. LAVAL Compiègne, 11 Août 1942. V - II - 200 [There are still a lot of them over there, and France awaits them with natural and legitimate impatience. Their presence is essential here, for they represent the living strength of our country. Workers who leave freely for Germany, look at these men you pass on the road. They owe their freedom to you, they will never forget it. The gratitude of the whole nation goes out towards you. Those workers who leave will allow me to defend the interests of our country better. Fraternity – which was often no more than a grand word – is here conveyed by a moving reality. P. Laval Compiègne, 11 August 1942]
