The River Selle is Reached

Thursday 10th October 1918

Today Fourth Army has continued its advance towards le Cateau and the River Selle. They have had fast going and the line of the river has been reached. The enemy seem to be holding the far bank in strength. The river itself, it is reported, is usually not much of an obstacle being up to 18 feet wide and up to 4 feet deep, though Autumn rains have swollen it and deepened it, making it, for the moment, a more difficult proposition. Both banks seem to be somewhat marshy, too.
