1st October 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph, “Conquer or die…” General Joffre’s latest order of the day to the French (page 9) concluded with this stark message, one which the Telegraph clearly loved given its leader on page 8 inspired by this. And it seemed to be having an effect given the stories still coming back from Loos and the Champagne (pages 9 and 10, with pictures on page 3)
Also in today’s paper
- Restaurants in London complain at the new licencing restrictions being brought in, and licenced traders in the City raise the issue of what actually constitutes a meal – page 6
- Body shields for soldiers are advertised on page 7, with the claim they protect against bullets, shell splinters, bayonet sword and lance
- Chancellor Reginald McKenna agrees to withdraw his planned import duties on hats and plate glass – page 11 - Art critic Sir Claude Phillips condemns the National Gallery’s approach to safeguarding its collection against Zeppelin raids, accusing it of having a foolish belief in luck – page 11 - A French ballet dancer sends her petticoats as a gift to the troops at the front, who use them as mosquito nets – page 11
