Nedaleko odsud - u La Targette v severni Francii - se boju na strane Spojencu zucastnila za 1. svetove valky v kvetnu r.1915 i slavna cesko-slovenska legionarska Rota Nazdar. Ve 2. svetove valce, od rijna 1944 do kvetna 1945 oblehala a osvobodila nedaleky pristav Dunkerque 1. ceskoslovenska samostatna obrnena brigada pod velenim slavneho generala Aloise Lisky.
