  • Text: Plus d'une fois, pendant la bataille du Nord, nos marins ont accompli de jolis exploits. / La nuit de 9 au 10 Octobre 1914 la brigade de fusiliers marins a été engagée contre des forces alle- /mandes très supérieures en nombre. Voici comment un détachement de fusiliers put réussie à surprendre / l'ennemi. Dans la journée du 9 Octobre eu lieu un violent combat dans les tranchées, à la chute du jour / la bataille se calma. Nos mains profitèrent de la nuit pour préparer savamment une attaque en surprise. / Au petit jour, un détachement de fusiliers s'avança en rampant jusqu'au camp ennemi. / Ils supprimèrent en silence les sentinelles avançées et se jettèrent impétueusement à la baîonnette sur / les Allemands à demi-éveillés qui n'eurent pas le temps de se défendre
