The (ierinan arlil lery had perhaps been lulled Into false seiurlty and was lioliig little shelling Bottle Up Hun� .\t the appointed hour the nritlsh gunners put down a sharp barrage and the British Infantry drovr for ward. The attaek was made from the southwest and northwest on Vil-lers-Dretonneux and these two forces drove in toward the Pasiern part of the town in a covcrging movement. As a result the Hritish bottled the town Hp. Thp Uritish infantry Immediately rushed the town and heavy htind to hand fighting ensued the bayonet being used freely. Six hundred prisoners were taken here alone and a great number of enemy were killed. Tho town was virtually (leared and today only a few scutteied pockets of tier-mans are in tho place. Some of them are still dug in along the VlUera-Ure-tonneux Marcel Cave Uailway bank-ment with muchino guns and these are causing some trouble but the ultimate extermination or capture is certain. In the Aquenne Forest, Just west of Villers-Bretonncux, one German officer and forty men had got a footing yesterday and they bung on until this mornlns. alHiough they were completely cut off. They surrendered today In a counter-attack a large,part of the old British positions about Villers-Brcfonneux were regained. Today those Germans who still remained in the bottle could not get out and their i oiiirades were unable to get In through the narrow neck to assist them. Tank vs. Tank During yesterday's fighting the fier-mans at one time got as far tis Cachy, southwest of Villers-Uretonneux, and Ibis represented their greatest advance. The tanks furnished the most dramatic chapter of the story of yesterday's battle. These ranks which the Germans employed for the first time, were bulky affairs with heavy armour and guns. The Uritish tanks, whiidi were thrown into the action to oftsei the German monsters, furniahed the first tank engagement in history. The main clash between the tanks came when the German engines attacked two smaller Uritish tanks. As might be expected one of the Uritish machines was dlaablod. The other being hard pressed by four or five of the big enemy tanks, one of the larger tanks which had observed the fight from Ihe distance, came rushing up and engaged the enemy It was a bnltlc royal, the tank guns blazed furiously and shells glanced from the steel armour In every direction. The Uritish tank finally got several shots home on one of the Germans ,iind put it out of action. This disconcerted the others and they fled leaving the Uritish lank with its smal-lei' (oniriide in possession of the field. Some of the most tolling work done by Ihe tanks was near Crecy. Here numbers of small and fast Brit tanks attuckud u luige concentration of enemy Infantry. Before the German.s were able to escape the swiftly moving monsters, were among them firing heavily into the dense ranks. .Many infantrymen were caught beneath Ihe machines and crushed The slaughter was fearful and tlu' tanks returned with their sides crimsoned.
