11th June 1915


 In todays' Daily Telegraph a captain in the Worcestershire Regiment has to pay £250 in damages to a music-hall artist for breach of promise after breaking off their engagement – page 3. The prosecution gives a high estimation to his love letters
- Germany appears to be not only using Zeppelins in the air, as page 7 has news of the destruction of one of their Parseval airships - A lance-corporal in the London Rifle Brigade tells a “thrilling story of the terrible experiences he has undergone in the trenches” on page 7, although he found it “wonderful” at the same time and considers that it would have been an “honour to die” alongside his fellows - E. Ray Lankester writes on page 7 to publicise a forthcoming lecture at the Royal Society on “Flies, Lice and other Minor Horrors of War” - The Telegraph sarcastically quotes the “ill-informed comment” in Germany on the resignation of W.J. Bryan, in what is surprisingly the only article about the subject today (page 8). Was it really in a better position to comment itself the day before though? - Two British torpedo boats are sunk by a German submarine, and this is deemed the news most worthy of the banner headline on page 9. Over the page on page 10 more trawlers fall foul to the U-boat menace. - Italy announces the capture of the Austrian naval town of Monfalcone – page 9
