The new British force drove over the frontier between Sudan and northern Eritrea and appeared . to be pushing' a wedge into Eritrea, possibly with the intention of eventually joining with British troops which hnve driven 150 miles Into Eritrea from the west. ' • .- : If the new drive from the north is being made In force It might threaten the Italian defenders of Eritrea with a ptncher .movement, squeezing them between the frontal assault from the west and the flank attack :irom the north.
