most end is again in our hands.
"A p art from the number of guns
hidden in houses and buried in the de­
bris, etc., we have in the course of
these operations brought in 26 field
guns, one naval gun, one anti-aircraft
gun, and one heavy howitzer, while
the number of German prisoners cap­
tured exceeds 7600."
