8th October 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph; Whilst the paper was celebrating a “success of high importance” by the French in the Champagne in the leader on page 6 (backed by a report from a British press representative there on page 8 and another map which actually tells little on page 5) it was also forced to note in this editorial that “events seem to be hurrying to a climax in South-Eastern Europe.” This they certainly were, as reports from Germany stated that she and Austria-Hungary had invaded Serbia, whilst Russia’s Quadruple Entente allies had followed her in breaking off diplomatic relations with Bulgaria, although there was still no news of the latter entering the war or invading Serbia herself even if the Germans were claiming a Russian naval attack on the country (page 7). Yet despite these developments the banner headline on the same page concentrated on the smaller news that British troops had landed at Salonika, hardly the most major development of the day!
Also in today’s paper
- A House of Lords committee examines who should be responsible for the licencing of London’s massage houses, amid concerns about the employment of women for immoral purposes in them – page 4
- It appears there might have been a degree of overzealousness in the darkening of London’s streets – page 6
- The Labour Party signs up to the latest recruiting campaign, if only to get behind it as a means of preventing the introduction of conscription – page 6 - President Woodrow Wilson announces his engagement – page 7 - Another 77 repatriated British prisoners of war return home, with “stories of suffering” – page 8 - Our Own Correspondent in Paris enjoys a new revue in the city poking fun at the Germans – page 8 - Queen Mary appeals for more comforts for the troops to be made by women – page 8
