In the course of the morning a number of othvr attacks were made by the enemy un- successfully at diftewst pointg along the baffie Front north of the La Bassee Canal. TVree separate attacks against our line soutjig-west, west, and north of Merville were in ¿àch case tepuleed after heavy fighting.

I Sunday, 10.59 a.m. After heavy fighting, lasting throughout the evening, the strong attacks launched by the enemy vesterday afternoon from Meteren to Wulvergliem were repulsed. Early in tho night the inemy again attacked at Newve Eglise for tlie fourth time during the day, and was once more repulsed. In addition to the attacks already re- ported, the enemy made a determined att-empt yesterday evening against our de- fences in the neighbourhood of Festubert, and was beaten ûfi. On this portion of the battle Front and north-westwards as far as Locon numerous bodjx'.s of hostile troops were effectively en- gaged during the evening- at short range by our infantrv and artillery fire. At the end of a day of continuous fighting and frequent assaults, many of them de- livered in great strength on all parts of the Lys battle Front, our line was reported to be intact. The enemy's losses throughout yesterday's fighting are reported to have been most severe. In the course of tho night fighting was re- newed about Neuve Eglise, and this morn- ing the enemy has recommenced his attacks in the neighbourhood of Bailleul. Fighting is continuing on this Front. FIGHT FOR NEUVE EGLISE. Sunday, 7.32 p.m. At the oloee of many hours of obstinate fighting during the night, and again this morning, about Neuve Eglise, our troops re- mained in possession of the village. The enemy's attacks in this sector have been pressed with great determination, and his losses have throughout been heavy. To-day the enemy has renewed his attempts to gain pos-seeaion of the village, and fighting continues. The attack oommenoed by the enemy early this morning in the neighbourhood of Bail- leu I was repulsed by our troops, and another hostile attack whioh developed later in the morning in the neighbourhood of Merris was equally unsuccessful. During the morning hostile infantry also attempted to attack north-west of Merville, but was caught and dispersed by our artillerv. Hostile artillery has been more active to- dav in the neighbourhood of Albert. On the remainder of the British Front there is nothing of special interest to report. EUYE EGLISE LOST AGAI. Monday, 10.30 a.m. Severe fighting continued all day yester- day around Neure Eglise. After beating off numerous attacks our troops were in the end compelled to withdraw a second time from the village. Strong attacks were made by the enemy yesterday afternoon at a number of other points on the battle Front. North-west of Merville fierce fighting took plaoe, as the result of which the attacking German infantry were driven back with great loss. Hostile infantry advancing along the northern bank of the Lvs Canal were caught by the fire of our artillery and were unable to develop their attack. In the course of the day no less than seven attacks were delivered bv the en-emy in the Merville sector, all of which were re- pulsed with heavy loss to his troops. In one ca^e the enemy advanced to the assault in five waves. Under the weight of this attack our line was bent back slightly, but was completely restored by our counter-attack. South-west of Bailleul parties of the enemy succeeded temporarily in penetrating our positions, but were driven out bv our counter-attack, and our line was restored. Successful minor operation was carried out by us during the 'night east of Robecq. Several machine-guns and 150 prisoners were ca ptured by us. Fighting took place also early this morn- ing south of the Somme in the neighbour- hood of Hangard. Our position in this sec- tor has been improved, and a number of prisoners have been taken by us.
