FRENCH STAND IN TUNISIA

GERMAN ATTACKS BEATEN OFF

BRITISH BATTER AXIS COLUMN

The following announcement was made last night from Allied Headquarters in North Africa:-

One of the British advance units inflicted heavy damage on a German armoured column in Tunisia on Saturday.

French forces were attacked by Germans in Tunisia. This French force is one of those which had disregarded the Vichy order not to oppose Axis occupation of Tunisia. Two vigorous attacks were unable to break French resistance, in spite of relatively severe losses. French patrols are operating far to the rear of Axis advanced positions.

A raid on the Tunis airfield was made yesterday by B17s of the 12th Air Force. They were escorted by P38s. At least five enemy aeroplanes were destroyed on the ground. Others were damaged and hits on hangars and warehouses were observed. Four German fighters were shot down.

The P38 is the Lockheed Lightening, a fighter of unorthodox design. Its tail unit is held by twin fuselages.


RUSSIANS ADVANCE 40 MILES IN STALINGRAD AREA

TOWN RETAKEN ON THE DON

ENEMY SUPPLY LINES CUT ON EASTERN BANK

The Red Army has made important advances at the approaches to Stalingrad. It was stated in a special announcement broadcast from Moscow last night that Russian troops moving in two directions, from the north-west and south of the city, have gained between 40 and 50 miles.
