The allied line in this region runs from
a point on the coast which has aot been

scene of the most perslBtent flrhtimf. The

attempting to push the German front to

In thia 'fighting the French appear to
have met with some success.. They an

also have taken the immediate approach
to Armentleree. At Arras they, claim
that they are continuing to gain ground.

would consider it a great victory to reach

strong reinforcements and Will strive with

The allies alao can bring up relnforce

that a great battle must be fought before
either side gives ground. The allies will
be assisted by the Ijritlsti shine when the
fighting reaches a point near the coast.
Along the center, which now stretches
from Roye to the Meuse, thefe appears
to hare been a lull in the fighting, which

Churchill, first lord of the admiralty, who
Has been severely criticised In some Quar
ters for dispatching naval brigades 'to
Antwerp to assist In the -defense pf that
fortress, I ha sent these organisations a
congratulatory message upon their re
turn, which is made public by the ad
miralty,' The first lord justifies the
action taken and says:
"A loss of the portion of the First
brigade through a mistake in no- way
reflects upon the quality or character of
the division. - '
"The brigades of '.royal marines

fully by their firmness, discipline and
courage the traditions of the corps.

"It is not necessary to say more than
this. The naval brigades bore themselves
admtrably under the artillery fire of the
enemy and it is to be regretted that no
opportunity of closer contact with his in
fantry was afforded them.
"The dinpatch of the naval brigades to
Antwerp has Interrupted for the time tha
progress of their instruction and train
ing. They were chosen because the need
for them was urgent; because . mobile
troops could not be spared for fortress
duties: because they were nearest and
could be embarked the quickest and be

was as far advanced as that of a large
portion not only of the forces defending
Antwerp, but of tha enemy's forces at
tacking. Withdrew ':(Wfcea Ordered.
"The naval division was Bent to Ant
werp, not as an Isolated " Incident, but
as a part of a largo operation for the re
lief of the city. . Other and more power
ful considerations prevented ' this front
being carried through. ,The defense of
the Inner lines of Antwerp could have
been maintained for some days and the
naval division withdrew only when or
dered to do so la obedience to the gen
eral strategic .'situation and not on ac
count of an attack or pressure by the
enemy. . ' ,
."The prolongation of. the defense due
to the arrival of the division enabled the
ships in the harbor to be rendered use
less and many steps of Importance to
Too Early to Jadg.
"It is too early now to Judge what ef
fect the delaying for even five or six
data, of at leaM 000 (jermwii before
Antwerp may have had upon the fortunes

merely as fortress, but as mobile unit.
