German offensive at Ypres “definitely stopped.” Dr. J. S. Haldane, F.R.S., reports to the War Office that from investigations on the spot the gases used by the Germans in their attack at Ypres were chlorine and bromine. He adds:-“There are also facts pointing to the use in German shells of other irritant substances, though in some cases at least these agents are not of the same brutally barbarous character as the gas used in the attack on the Canadians.”
