AFTER TWO YEARS I "GERMANY WILL COLLAPSE: OUR VICTORY IS CERTAIN! PROGRESS BY THE ALLIES AT ALL POINTS. BRITISH SHIP'S CAPTAIN SHOT BY THE GERMANS FOR ACTING IN SELF-DEFENCE. FRIDAY. There was more hard fighting on the British line north of the Somme. Oiiif troops continued to press the enemy, and captured trenches west of Pozieres. There is no chainge in the situation north of Verdun. In the fighting between SloniovKa and Stvr on the 25th the Russians took prisoners 128 officers and 6,250 men. The Turks ousted from Erzingan are being pursued by the Russians, who in the fortress have captured a depot of war material. In German East Africa the. British forces have had a fresh important suc- cess. A hrge body of the enemy hold- ing the territory north of Lake Nyassa were dislodged from. positions and;; driven northward. SATURDAY. Delville Wood, on the BritisE right wing north of Longueval, was cleared of the enefriv, and firmly held against counter-attacks of Brandenburgers, who had been brought from the Ver- dun front, to stem the tide of our ad-r viance. In the final clearance three officers and 158 men of the enemy force were captured. The British opened a violent bom- bardment of the enemy front line at Souchez. v The Russian contingent in Cham- pagne made a successful reconnais- sance near Auberive, cleared a German position, and brought back soma pri- soners. Petrograd news showed that the Russians have again gone forward at Barainovitchi, iand achieved another important victory west of Luzk. In it-rne /tfegioin pf Slonliovk and Boldu- j rovka they delivered a smashing blow, the enemy's front being icrumpled, and 9,000 prisoners, including two gen- erals. and 48 guns captured. Brodv, the important industrial town of North- eastern Galieia, near the Russian fron- tier. and 48 miles ifroim Lemberg. ha-s been occupied. The Italians have repelled with heavy losses to the enemy attacks in force against their new positions on Mounts Sellugio. in the Posina Valley, and Zebro, on the Sette Comuni plat- eau, whilst on the Col Briceon they have gained gronnd. Serbiam trootps have driven Bulgar- ians from positions near the village of Sborska. north of Vodena, in Greek 1 territory, after a sharp engagement. Captain Fryatt, of the steamer Brus- sels, has been shot at Bruges by order of a German court martial because on March 28th last year. it is alleged, he attempted to ram the U 33. Captain Fryatt never attempted to ram a sub- marine. but he was complimented by the British Admiralty, and presented with a gold watch for his skill in evad- ing a submarine on March 28th last vear. MONDAY. I Two smashing blows were delivered to the enemy by the Russians. The menace to Kovel has become more im- minent. The enemy has been forced to fall back to the left bank of the Stokhod. The taking of Brody. reported on- Friday, and the advance on Stanislau mark important developments in Gali- cia. The Russians continue to ad- vance and pursue the enemy in the direction of Brodv. Kovel, and Dnies- ter. On Friday 400 officers, 20,000 men, and 55 guns were taken by the Rus- sians. Thf( capture of General Brusi- loff';s armies on Friday and Saturday include 651 officers, 32,000 men, and 114 guns. In conjunction with the French the offensive was taken by the British ea.st- ward of Delville Wood, Waterlot Farm, the Trones Wood, and Maltzron Farm. Progress was made along the line and 2ÕO Germans were captured. The enemy was encountered in strength and must have suffered heavily. In the Caucasus the Russians are continuing to press back the Turks. The Italians continued progress from MounT Uiraone, iand in the Tofane re- gion have carried more positions. TUESDAY. The Allied offensives, West and East, are being pressed with satisfactory results. On the Mouse, further trench fight- ing has gone in favour of the. French. I The Russian armies of General Brll-l siloff have now forced their way fur- r ther westward towards Kovel, Vladimir Volynski, and Lemberg. Fighting is very fierce in the Stokhod region, and the Russians continue to make exten- sive captures. The 31 st Honved (Hun- garian) Regiment with its commander and staff was cornered, and surren- dered, and att other points along the Stokhod 935 prisoners were taken. 1 Russian columns are converging on Kovel and also on the front west of Brody. In the Caucasus the Petrograd official report states the Russian advance from Erzingan is maintained. Italian Headquarters announces re- pulse of the Austrians. who attacked with reinforcements in the Adige Val- ley and Treviguolo Valley, and con- tinued progress of the Italians on [Mount Cimone. in the Astico Valley. The. conquest of Germany's last colony is steadily proceeding. amd its consummation in a few months will release more troops for other fields. Deven tor's force occupied Dodoma on tho central rai!way. over 200 miles from the coast- at Dar-es-Salaam. In Arabia the revolt against. Tur- key is assuming great proportions. Yambo. the port which serves the holv city of Mecca, has been, captured, along with its garrison, by the forces of the Grand Slierif. At 5.15 on Sunday morning one of our aeroplanes pursued and attacked a Zeppelin 30 miles off the East Coast. The pilot fired ifito the Zeppelin until he was temporarily incapacitated by a portion of his machine gun flying off and stunning him. WEDNESDAY.. General Joffre, addressing the French Army, says the time is coming when the military power of Germany will collapse under general pressure. Victory is certain. The Russian columns converging 011 Kovel are steadily advancing, and they have arrived within 20 miles of the important railway junction. From the bond of the Stokhod the enemy has been thrown back, and his counter-attacks further to the west between Kovel and Luzk have failed. In South-Eastern Galicia the Rus sians have by a dashing coup de main seized the western bank of the river Kouropetz, fording the deep stream in face of the enemy, and consolidating themselves on the other side. They cap- tured over 1,000 Austro-Hungarians. The Army of the Caucasus continues to drive the Turks towards Mosul. The Serbians, in three days' fighting I in Greek territory, gained possession of advanced positions of the enemy and held them against counter-attack. At Salonika a satisfactory arrange- ment has been effected regarding the 'I reduction of the Greek garrison, and demobilisation of the Greek Army is now announced to be complete. I Mount Cimone continues to be the scene- of fierce counter-attacks by the Austrians, but the Italians are firmly holding the captured ground and tak- ing heavy toll of the enemy. In the Trevignolo Valley the Italians have made further progress. A detailed despatch from General Smuts shows that the converging British columns have again achieved important successes in East Africa, and are sweeping the enemy back at all points. The Belgians operating on Lake Vic- toria in conjunction with the British have also made good progress and re- port the destruction of a German gun- boat. The raid by six or seven Zeppelins ou the East iCbast on Monday night, like the previous raid, caused no casualties. THURSDAY. There was another Zeppelin raid on the East Coast early on Thursday morning. The French successfully carried out a vigorous counter-offensive on the right bank of the Mense, resulting in the capture of hostile trenches, 800 prisoners, and 10 machine guns. In 33 air combats on the Somme front on Tuesday, 15 German machines were driven down. Great work was done by British Royal Flying Corps on Wednesday. The Russians are only 10 miles from Kovel.

To the Editor of the Barry Dock News." Sir.—A real and urgent necessity- has arisen for more Nurses, V.A.D., Nursing Members (Women), and V.A.D. General Service. Members, in Military and Auxiliary Hospitals a home. The demands made upon us by the Military Authorities are very heavy, and cannot be met out of the existing supply. There must still be many women who are not giving the whole of their time and service to the War, and who have no ties which prevent them from doing so. We earnestly^ call upon these women to come forward and lwlp us in thi.s emergency, and thus enable us to answer the call of the sick and wounded men. Suitable women who are willing to help in the Hospitals may be attached to existing Voluntary Aid Detachments for immediate service in the Hospitals. FuU information on this point may be obtained from the County Director (Colonel J. A. Hughes, C.B., Barry).-— Yours tflaithfuilly, (Signed) ARTHUR STANLEY. Chainman. Executive Committee British Red Crotss Society. RANFURLY, Director of the Ambulance De- partment of the Order of St. John. LOCAL FARMERS AND V.A.D. HOSPITALS. To the Editor of the "Barry Dock News." Si r:-Ill other districts farmers and allotment holders have agreed to ren- der valuable assistance to the V.A.D. Hospitals by promising to supply them, free of all charge, with green vegetables, such as savoys, cabbages,, sprouts, etc., which will be wanted and most welcomed by our wounded sol- diers more than any other kind during, the coming winter. As now is planting time, might I suggest to our local friends amongst the farmers and allotment holders, and those with ground available, to con- sider seriously if they could plant up some small corner with greenstuff for the sole use of the nearest V.A.D. Hos- pital? Labour for this purpose could be obtained gratuitously. I quite think that Barry will not be behindhand once the suggestion is- made. If owners are unable to deliver to a depot in Barry, a postcard to the Matron, with name and address, that certain goods are available for the Barry Dock V.A.D. Hospital, with 83 wounded soldiers, will now or at anv time ensure an early call with a con- veyance, and will earn the gratitude of those benefiting and of those respon- sible. Yours truly. F. P. JONES-LLOYD. Barry. August 2. 191(1.
