The writer gives many touching instances of the heroism of

the officers and men; the doctors, he adds, were worthy of their patients and their patients were worthy of them. Summing up the results, he observes that since the blow dealt the Germans at Reeve Chapelle the casualties in the trenches have been considerably reduced; that the surprise prevented the enemy from withdrawing troops from our front to send against the French in the fighting at Notre Barrie de Loretta ; and lastly, that, in the words of Sir Douglas Haig, "the British soldier has once more given the Germans a proof of his superiority in a fight, as well as of his pluck and determination to conquer."
