THE GREAT WAR BLOG

24th September 1914


In todays' Daily Telegraph the propaganda war over the Zeppelin raids continued, as the New York World prints an interview with a German Zeppelin pilot about the recent raid of London. Not that the Telegraph was accepting what was being said, for the article republishing this is at pains to point out it isn’t wholly truthful (page 9). Meanwhile a picture of the Royal Palace at Stuttgart on page 3 reveals this building was attacked in reprisal raids for German bombings.
Also in today’s paper
- A new Joseph Conrad novel is reviewed on page 4
- The Lord Mayor of London starts a new fund for Belgian relief – page 8, which a leader article on the same page encourages donations to, even though the Telegraph still has its own Belgium fund running. Meanwhile on page 11 Cheltenham does its bit for the Belgians with a war exhibition
- The ramifications of the Budget were still being felt, with the abolition of the halfpenny postage proving something of a hot potato – pages 9 and 10 - A case in the courts raises the issue as to whether interned aliens can pursue legal actions – page 12
