4th October 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph: The situation regarding Bulgaria took a twist today, with Russia delivering an ultimatum calling upon the country to “break immediately with the enemies of Slavdom” or else she would break off diplomatic relations with the country (page 9).
Meanwhile Sir John French announced that the Battle of Loos was reaching “a definite stage” – page 9, with more accounts on page 10
Also in today’s paper
- General Smuts is attacked at a party meeting in Johannesburg by a group variously described as “roughs” and “hooligans” – page 7
- Reports in America praise the British success in countering German submarines – page 9 - The High Commissioner for Australia issues a despatch concerning a “Glorious Charge of the Light Brigades” at Gallipoli (pages 9 and 10) although the sub-headline “Dash to certain death” sounds rather alarming for their prospects - France unveils a new battle-plane – page 10 - Two soldiers are killed after being hit by a railway engine whilst marching over the Forth Bridge – page 10 - “It was easily the finest thing of its kind that the metropolis has ever seen” says the report on London’s recruiting rally on page 11 - 50 shipyard workers are fined £5 each for striking over the presence of non-union employment in the yard as the Ministry of Munitions cracks down on such behaviour – page 12
