NotesImage 1: See LSE3275 for published cartoon. News: April 12: ... North Africa: The
Eighth Army, after an 80-mile advance from Sfax, occupied Susa (Sousse), the third port in
Tunisia, without opposition; the enemy had destroyed all port installations and the
electricity and water supply services before evacuating. ... It was reported from the front
that following the fall of Susa, Rommel's and von Arnim's forces were preparing for a last
stand in the 100-mile arc covering Tunis and Bizerta mountainous country providing strong
natural defences, and that heavy fighting could be expected before the enemy were finally
ejected from Africa... [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.5717] Image 2: See DL2003 for
