CASUALTY LIST By Associated Press. LONDON, lApril 23.--British, naval forces today raided the Jennan submarine bases of Ostend and Zeebruggee, the admir- .Ity announces. Five old cruisers which had been filled -with oncrete for use in blocking the channel were 'run aground, down up and abandoned by their crews. The admiralty reports that according to incomplete infor- oation. thus far received the raid met -with a reasonable meas- ire of success. In all probability the entrance to the Bruges canal has been 'locked effectively in consequence of the naval raid, Sir Eric Jeddes, first lord of the admiralty, announced today in the louse of Commons. While the operation was in progress, Sir Eric announced, British parties were landed to distract the enemy. The officer ?ho developed the scheme of attack was killed. The casualties to British craft, Sir Eric said, were one de- troyer and two coastal motor boats sunk and two launches oissing. Storming parties were landed on the Mole from the cruiser 'indictive. The casualties to the personnel. Sir Eric, said, were leavy in proportion to the number engaged. Two of the blockading ships were sunk and blown up at tfee Â·ntrance to the Bruges canal. The piling beside the Mole at ieebroggee was blown up by an obsolete submarine filled with :XplO6JTÂ«S. The Brnges eanal is about six miles long, running from the lity of that name to the North Sea at Zeebruggee. This canal is f great value to the Gertruuis because the principal base of the ;abmarines operating from Zeebruggee is at Bruges, where there ire extensive docks and shipbuilding yards.
