SECOND ARMY’S CORRIDOR WIDENED
ADVANCES ON BOTH FLANKS
FLEET OF AIR TRANSPORTS LANDS MEN AND SUPPLIES
ENEMY FORCES HEMMED IN AT CALAIS
General Dempsey has secured more room to manoeuvre by the widening and strengthening of the Second Army’s corridor in Holland. Advances have been made on both flanks.
Reinforcements and supplies were flown into the corridor yesterday by a fleet of transports.
There is no news of the airborne forces at and west of Arnhem, and their situation is thought to be very grave.
At Calais the Canadians are progressing satisfactorily, and the main body of the enemy garrison has been pushed back into the town itself.
