Emergency relief: the Vichy government equipped two relief trains to bring medical assistance, food aid, clothes and a claims processing office to air raid victims. Though often hampered by damage to the rail network, the trains proved their usefulness on several occasions – and were also intended to fulfil a propaganda function. The train here is seen bringing relief to Le Creusot in June 1943.
