Again the British have advanced :heir front on the right and left wings In the Somme and Aiicre regions of France. On the left flank, east of Uonimeccurt, the Germans gave up ground over a front of two miles to ia average depth of 1,200 yards, while on the right flank, east of Boucha- vesnes, an attack gave the British ter- rain on a front of 1,200 yards and i73 prisoners, according to the London w-ar office. Heavy casualties were In- flicted on the Germans in several counter attacks. The recent ceding of ground by the Germans in the Ancre and Somme re- gions evidently was not carried out for stragetic reasons, but because of necessity, according to a press corre- spondent. A visit to various points of the line showed that the guns of the\ British had torn up trenohes and communication trenches and searched out thoroughly the ground on a wide area behind the German line, where many hundreds of dead were later found.
