Not illustrated. 1919 Excerpt: ...aged 78, taken away with only slippers on their feet, were the first to fall from exhaustion; they were shot point-blank. Soon after, Mr. Vapaille suffered the same fate. The next day Mr. Terre, an invalid, fell and was killed with revolver shots; Mr. Croix and Mr. Llevin stumbled in their turn and were also shot.
