Collision in Clouds Out of the ciouds this aviator brought still another new won- der tale. In the midst of a cloud there was a sudden shock.

Heavy Losses for British British Headauarters in France, via London, July the British troops, particularly in their attack north of Ancre and Gommecourt to La Boisselle, have had to encounter, hare been prodigious.

Many units have suffer- ed dire losses. On this northern end of the attacking line are regiments in some cases only remnants regi- ments now, whose names will ring through Britain when the time arrives for the full story of this battle to be told.
