To-day's French official commu- nique, issued through the Trens Bureau, is as follows:— On the front of the Somme two strong enemy detachments which attempted to reach our lines Lo the west of Vermandovillers, were repulsed by rifle fire. On the left bank of the Meuse a Ger- man attempt on our position at Hill 304, failed under our fire. On the right bank of the Meuse two German attacks launched in the course of the night against a re- doubt in the ravine to the south of Fleury, were broken by our cur- tain fire and infantry fire, which inflicted serious losses on the enemy. Our troops, pursuing their local operations, have captured some elements of trenches north of La Chapelle St. Fine and in the region of the Thiamont Work, where we captured a machine- gun. The artillery duel is always lively in the sector of the Fumin Wood and Chenois. The nig1 twas calm on the rest of the front. Aviation.—During the morning of 27th July, a French aeroplane, piloted by Sergt.-Major De Der- line, attacked a German machine flying over Thalons. The French plot had just opened fire when his machine gun jammed. The enemy took to flight. Two of our aviators who noticed Sergt.- Major De Derline, put up speed. caught his 'adversary, and over- turned his machine. Sergt.- Major De Derline was dragged with him in his fall. The Frenc h pilot and the two German avia- tors, who fell within our lines, were all killed. Sergt.-Major De Derline had al- ready brought down two aero- planes, and had just received the Military Medal.

Two German attacks against this im- portant position were broken against the customary resistance of the British troops. Simultaneously our Allies made further progress in the village of Longue- val. the whole of which they now occupy, and in the vicinity of Pozieres Regarding events in the French sectors of the Somme our communiques are! Bilettt, but 4 is nevertheless an interesting fact that the enemy thought it necessary to fiend out a strong reconnaisance in the region of Chaulnes, before Verdun.' An attack which was being prepared against our positions west of Tliiaumont; was held up by our curtain fire, without | being able to approach our lines, and we gained some ground in consequence in this region.
