28th September 1915



In todays' Daily Telegraph progress reported on Champagne, around Loos and on the Russian front. It was looking like the start of a good autumn for the Allies if the reports on page 9 and 10 are anything to go by, Also in today’s paper - Sir Robert Baden-Powell praises the discretion of Girl Guides, but isn’t very complimentary about girls in general in doing so – page 4 - A chink in the edifice of the age of steam on the railways as work on the electrification of commuter lines out of Waterloo is almost complete – page 5. Talking of the railways readers can discover about goods traffic problems from a Goods Superintendent on page 6 - A former Belgian subject feels the wrath of the law for photographing a gun station without permission, although his defence argues that “the absolute stupidity of the act … was itself the clearest possible proof that there was no desire to do wrong” – page 5 - D. W Griffith’s celebrated film The Birth of a Nation is reviewed on page 6 - The French success in Champagne leads to an article about the terrain there and the history of fighting in the region on page 7; “think of Salisbury Plain” apparently for the location of the current battle - Success is reported in the campaign for earlier closing of shops, although in this light it is a bit startling to see this defined as not later than 8 o’clock on three nights, 9 o’clock on Fridays and 10 o’clock on Saturdays in London – page 10 - Two articles on page 10 give a rosy view of Italy’s role in the fighting in keeping Austria busy - Advice is given as to what to send as comforts to the men at Gallipoli on page 10 - Accusations in Spain that Germany was plotting to take over Majorca or some other or even all of the Balearic Islands – page 11
