HC Deb 24 February 1916 vol 80 c800
14. Mr. FELL

asked the Secretary for the Colonies if he could make any statement with regard to the operations in the Cameroons?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Bonar Law)

A telegram was received from the Governor-General of Nigeria on 18th February, reporting that the German garrison at Mora in the north of the Cameroons, had capitulated. This completes the conquest of the Cameroons by the Allied Forces, and I have telegraphed my warm congratulations to Major-General Dobell, to Brigadier-General Cunliffe, and to the forces under their respective commands.
