Lining the River

Saturday 12th October 1918

There has been some fighting around the River Selle today, but it seems to be of a type which might be described as "tidying up the battlefield"(1). The British armies wish to line the River Selle prior to another advance. Third Army has had the hardest fighting but has now reached the river.

(1) A concept central to Field Marshal Montgomery's thinking in World War Two.
