Prior to the loss of Comblea, the
effect of the French and Brltiah arm

flected in the official communication
issued by the German war office,
which, a fte r describing briefly the

attack between the Ancre and the
Somme, adm ita th a t “ th e conquest of

“ But before all we m ust think of our

The German casualties in the fight
