tanks the Britons stormed Flesquieres. on the Baupame-Cambrai
road, two and, a half miles west of Cambrai and near. Marcoing.
Here the Huns fired seven large guns, point blankr at short range
on the approaching tanks. The encounter1 was terrific, The British
infantry, cheering as they ran, dashed forward, captured all sccn
of the guns, killed the crew of three of the guns, while the other gun
crews fled precipitately. .
Similarly the Britons stormed and took Preiny Chapellc at the
point of the bayonet. .
At Rumilly the cavalry especially distinguished itself; It dashed
upon the German fortifications, sabred gunners as they stood, took
the batteries and Bwept on madly into the streets ofhe town.
It is said that in this a'dvarice along a front of more than thirty
miles on Wednesday and somewhat shortened" yesterday, the British
employed the services of 200 tanks, the largest number used in any
engagement since Great Britain first introduced them. ,

counter attacks against the French in the lattcr's new positions, but
