lished a dispatch . from Harwich dated
Sunday. October 18, on the return to port
of the British warships which vanquished
four German torpedo boat destroyers In
the North Sea last Saturdsy. The dis
patch' said: ...
"Berlng',,ltV;ba.Ule' honors proudly, the
Undaunted (Ms afternoon led Into Har
wich froni the North Boa the destroyers
which participated in the engagement the
result of whlch was the sinking of four
German destroyers. The spectacle ashore
and sf lost was a moving one. Bailors,
soldiers and . civilians swarmed onto, the
pier and to points of vantage, cheering
the victors, y . . , V . '
' Forced to Fisat.
"Interviews with the crew of the tTn".
daunted show that this vessel, together
with four British torpedo.boat destroyers,
left Harwich early Saturday morning and
sighted the. Qertysns early. In the after
noon. By fine seamanship the enemy'Was
forced to fight.- The German destroyers
faced th odds bravely, with Us big guns
the Undaunted opened 'lie at a range of
Jive miles. Then ' the ,' smaller -veseels
closed In and' became' busy.'
"Then began a running fight.. While the
cruiser,' protected from torpedoes . by its
fighting ' consorts,, devoted ,lts 'attention
particularly to two of the enemy's 'ships
the destroyers attacked the ; other two'.
The reply 'from the Geninans 'was very
poor in comparison.' -The1 first Jf the 'en
emy's crat sank after a half ,hours fight
ing. Within an hour and a half the' bat
Ue was over. ; ; ' .' ' ""
(rasas 11 ark y.
"One sailor-pays' tribute-, to the pluck
of the Germans. .They fought .well, ,he
ssld, end kept firing till they sank. This
accounts for the smallness of 1U num
ber of German survivors.
"The . destroyer -r Loyal ..brought back
three British wounded, together with the
bodies of four German men and one Gen
man officer who had succumbed to their
! Injuries on the way.
I "The wounded have been transferred to
.Shotley hospital and the prisoners of war
have been tsKen from the Undaunted snd
removed to barracks."- ' . . u ,.
From another source It Is related that
a trawler ' sighted the German destroyers
before, the British fleet came up., When
the German, boats saw .the -enemy . they
ir.ade frantic efforts to escape.

that they are bound for Dunkirk
