Fall of Halicz to General Korniloff‘s troops; they pursue the enemy across the Lomnica and take 2,000 prisoners. Intense artillery fight on the Belgian coast; Germans level British defences east of the mouth of the Yser and win ground on a front of 1,400 yards, two surrounded British platoons fighting to the last man; opposite Lombartzyde they get into the British advanced positions, but are driven out again.
