  • Text: Au cours d'un récent engagement en Lorraine, dans la nuit de 9 au 10 Février, un des soldats / allemands des troupes d'attaque prit feu et s'enfuit en hurlant. Dans sa course il éclairait la / campagne et fit découvrir ainsi un groupe de tirailleurs dont la plupart furent abattus. / Ce soldat était vraisemblablement porteur de matieres inflammables auxquelles l'une de nos / balles mit le feu. On sait, en effet, que les troupes allemands sont pourvues d'un matériel / d'incendie fort bien organisé.
