Recent news from East Africa has been very satisfactory, and on the night of September 4 it was reported that Dres-Saaam, the former seat ermn Government in German East Africa, had surrendered at nine o’clock on the morning of that day. As regards the operations from the Rhodesian side, which our photographs illustrate, a War Office statement of August 3 said : “In the southern theatre, Brigadier-General Northey’s principal columns are at Ngominji (32 miles south-west of en Iringa), Madibira, and Merika (7 miles east of Lupembe). The enemy in this quarter is also being pressed back on Mahenge. On Lake Tanganyika troops have been disembarked at Kirando, whence they have worked inland and are in touch with the Belgian columns advancing on Tabora. Another of our forces has advanced from Bismarckbrg to Kate.” The eperatios illustrated in the


above photograhs were mentioned in the following statement issued by the War Office on June 7 : “Telegrapbing on June 6, Brigadier-Genera Northey reports that the British columns which crossed the Nyasaland-German East Africa frontier on May 25 have pursued the enemy, who is retiring in the direction of Iringa, as far as the vicinity of Neu Utengule, capturing prisonrs, ammunition, stores, and supplies. Colonel Murray, commanding the Rhodesian columns which were investing Namina, reports that the garrison of that place broke out during, the night of June a-3, mering heavy casualties and levi several prisoners (including the German commandant, who was wounded) in our hands. Our losses in these operations were very small” The frontier between Northern Rhodesia and German East Africa stretches from the southern end of Lake Tanganyika to the northern end of Lake Nyasa.
