  • Text: Le champ de bataille de cette grande guerre s'elargit chaque jour davantage. Les flottes alliées, / préparant la route de Constatinople, ont commencé avec succès le bombardment des forts inté- /rieurs des Dardanelles. / Aidées par les hydroplans qui vont en reconnaissance, les flottes franco-anglaises ont détruit le / premier et le second groupe des forts qui défendent de détroit; elles ont fait sauter la grande / poudrière de Néohari et le phare de Kavaophonie. / Pendant ce temps, des barques de pêche, montées par de matelots de la flotte, relèvent / méthodiquement les torpilles turques.
