LONDON, Jan. 1.
Britain today lost another of her seo-ond-llns
battleships. The Formidable,
sister. ship to the Bulwark, which was
destroyed on Thanksgiving Day, was
blown up in the English Channel. It la
feared that at least 700 members of the
crew of 780 have been lost The Admi
ralty says 71 aurvlvqrs are known to
have been picked up. Hope is held out
that at least a few others may have been
Wltlle the official announcement says It
Is' not yet known whether the disaster
was -due to a submarine or a mine, it Is
generally believed that the submarines
have scored again. The German under
seas craft have been active In the chan
nel and along1 the Belgian coast for the
last month, and It has required the ut
most precautions on the part of the Brit
ish naval commanders to keep their ves
sels out of danger.
While the loss of the battleship herself
is minimized ln official circles, inasmuch
as ahe was not considered In the first line
strength, the loss of the trained- officers
and men who manned her Is most serious.
Just what other warships wero In com
pany with the Formidable when she was
destroyed is not permitted to become
known. That they made for safety im.
mediately, abandoning the Formidable to
her fate, in accordance wtlh the Ad
miralty rules, I certain. a-o,thls is
due the heavy casualty Ust, The water
of the Channel Is so cold at present that
the sailors had little chance for life.
The Admiralty's announcement was:
The battleship Formidable was sunk
this morning In th Channel. It a un

marine. Seventy-one survivors have
been picked up. and it Is possible that
