The way to prove yourself capable of good team work is to Sacrifice and Save. If you are not willing to do that you are the kind of man who is willing to go to the oth-r side.

Two companies .siml patrols across the canal at n:05 add established bridgeheads. Half an hour later, men penetrated (he city to (5ramie Rue Fonelon and thence made their way to Place d'Arms. Another column crossed over farther tip ami scoured the line of railways on Boulevard do In Liberie. A little after six o'clock this battalion was in possession of the barracks hospital and gas works and by nine o'clock occupied the ou-tiro rlty. A Central Ontario battalion meanwhile crossed tb� eaual lower down and secured the northeast fringe of the city along the line of (he Poiiai railway. The Canadian engineers established a pontoon hrodge over the canal at six o'clock. Much of the success of the operation was duo to the effect ivo counter-barrage and artillery laid down on tho enemy gun positions. The enemy held the city with late rear guards which the sudden onslaught of our men quickly thrust aside. The Canadian troops pu>.h"d out oast of Cambrai along the line to the canal. Very brilliant was the first crossing of the demolished railway bridge. Two men swam across the canal, bombed the enemy out of his bridgehead and then, linked arm-inarm, the leading nifln of the company scrambled over and in a short time a practical crossing was connected up.
