Photograph | Photograph Number: 51674

German soldiers and their families surrender to Allied troops.

Original caption reads: Two German soldiers walking to surrender with their children on their shoulders and the rest of their family trailing behind.

German soldiers are giving themselves up to the British in very large numbers. Some are coming into the British lines on every type of vehicle, whilst thousands of others are coming on foot, and bringing their wives and children.
