CHASEO TO HELIGOLAND. News of what part the British Fleet' plaYNl when the Germans made a raid. on Scarborough and other towns on the Korth Coast is gradually leaking out.. Some of the sailors who were engaged in chasing the Germans were given 4S hours' leave, and one of them, when spoken to, said they were off on Wednesday, when they had the message that a number of German boats were bomharding the Yorkshire coast. In- stead of rushing south to get at the Ger- mans, the beat he was u11, as well as, ot hers,, steamed across the North Sea to in a gentle south-eastern slope to- wards Heligoland. By this means they intended getting between the Germans and Germany and compelling them to I light before thev got home if ever they did. Lost in the Mist. I Unfortunately there was a thick mist on at the time, and they could not see very far ahead. They had also to be cautious because they had to look out for mines and submarines. The British scouts were well ahead, and as they got to Heligoland they signalled that the Germans had just got round the Heligo- land Bight, w here, of course, it was not sftfo, to follow. From all he could gather it was a case of "nip and rUll," so far as the Germans were concerned. never had a narrower escape, because if the British bouts had m!ld, ¡' for a point about seven miles more south than they did they would have intercepted the Germans. As it was, the Germans could thank the mist for their I lucky escape. Adverse Criticism Not Justified. I Since he was home he had heard some II adverse comment about the British Fleet in this matter, but these were by people who did not know all the circumstances. The men on his bhip were all jubilant when they had news of the raid and realised that at last they were to have a pop at the Germans, and it was really painful to sec their feelings when they knew that the Germans had been able to I' skedaddle off. But we'll get them," he concluded.
