Business much slacker at the office. Had walk at town at night.

British Army defeat Germans at Soissons & capture men & guns1.

  1. Soissons: when the German advance was stopped by Galliéni’s flank attack, counter-­attacks by the main French and British armies were required to keep the Germans moving back. Soissons is some distance North of the Marne, not far on the Allied side of the eventual front line.
