30th September 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph  unsurprisingly the ongoing Battle of Loos dominated the news today, with over half of page 9 and part of page 10 given over to stories relating to the fighting. “One of the most glorious exploits of the British Army” claimed one article, among the usual litany of praises for the efforts of Allied soldiers and dismissal of German claims which ran counter to those of the Allies. Add in the successes for the French (also on pages 9 and 10) and losses for the Germans in the current fighting were now claimed to be 120,000, although there is something of a hint of speculation to this statement.
Also in today’s paper
- A tribunal is asked to consider whether war biscuits count as munitions – page 3
- Companies with warehouses, especially those containing flammable materials, are told to make sure they have someone on the premises at night to deal with incendiary bombs – page 6
- New regulations for lighting in London at night are issued – page 8 - An article on page 8 calls for the need to suppress the activities of night clubs - Its not only in Loos that the British are reported to be experiencing success, as more defeats are inflicted upon the Turks in Mesopotamia – page 9 - An Italian battleship blows up in Brindisi, but “the authorities absolutely exclude any question of the disaster being a foreign outrage” – page 11
