THE GREAT WAR BLOG

14th June 1915


Another good day all round for the Allies if you believe everything that is reported about them in today's Daily Telegraph. All was still faring excellently for the Italians, and we had two reporters, W. T. Massey and A. Beaumont, on hand to report on this (page 9). The French meanwhile could boast of the capture of a railway station (same page) whilst “the Russian victory … on the Dniester was of a much more emphatic character than from the first reports appeared to have been the case” even though the Germans were reportedly back on the attack (page 9) and we admit on page 10 that “none but the most meagre descriptions” of this conflict had reached the West. Add in the usual optimistic outlook at Gallipoli despite “the successes of the enemy,” this time from a Reuter’s correspondent on page 7, and it was still the case that readers of the Telegraph could surely only be confident about the final outcome for Britain as well as her dominions, colonies and allies.
Also in today’s paper
- The Mayor of Southend-on-Sea writes to counter rumours that those in the town are likely to be called upon to leave it at 48 hours’ notice, and stresses it is still open for tourism – page 4
- Our Special Correspondent writes of “Picturesque scenes” from the Turkish side of the Dardanelles from the site of Troy – page 8
- The first batch of volunteers from workers in the City of London do their first stint helping at Woolwich Arsenal – page 9 - Dunrobin Castle, home of the Duke of Sutherland, suffers a serious fire – page 9 - The New York World publishes a letter from a former M.P. who spied for the Central Powers – page 11. “Astonishing” and “astounding” are how the Telegraph describes this
