26th June 1915



Another day where nothing particularly new or notable leaps out from the pages of the paper, although an advert and application form for the war loan taking up the whole of page 13 can’t be missed.
It is amusing to see that after two gymkhanas, (see June 1 and 15) it is now a horse show for the Indians behind the lines in France (page 10), and curious that we only seem to hear about their leisure activities rather than a military context
Also in today’s paper
- An article on page 7 laments the demise of the fish ordinaries
- Germany gets a taste of its own medicine with a Russian submarine attack on one of its warships, in a “thrilling story” found on page 8 - Russia claims it has inflicted “severe defeats” upon the Germans and Austrians – page 9. Germany admits it has evacuated a village, which is rather less than the “sharp set-back” the headline given to it suggests - The enrolment of munition workers is “proceeding quite satisfactorily” in the London area says an article on page 9 - Socialists generate uproar by calling for peace in the Prussian Diet – page 10
