"Thus terminated the three-day battle of Kilkis-Lachanas, with the Greek arms
having full prevalence, but also with heavy toll. The total casualties
of the Greek army during this battle reached 8,828 killed and
wounded, among whom ten battalion or regimental commanders.[...]
The Bulgarian casualties have also been great, without though being fully
verified, while approximately 2,500 Bulgarians have been
taken prisoners and 19 guns, 5 limbers, large quantities of small arms, and considerable
equipment were captured.
The General Staff, remaining in Melissohori the whole day of 21st June,
issued in 21.00 an order for the following day,
according to which the divisions should, from the noon of 22nd June,
be ready to resume their advance, apart from the divisions already in the pursuit
of the enemy. At the same time due to the great casualties
in army officers during the Kilkis-Lachanas battle, it commanded the removal of all the insignia of rank from
officers' caps, so as not to be an evident
target to the enemy".
