12th October 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph: It was a busy day in the court and tribunal systems, with quite a variety of cases heard. Page 5 has a collection of these, which include a member of the Anti-German Lecture League being prosecuted after interrupting a service at a German church in London, a workman falling foul of a tribunal for deliberately slacking in order to get dismissed from his job, a London publican being fined for allowing too much light to escape from his establishment, and an inquest hearing of a suicide of a Russian dancer after his wife runs off with a fellow dancer with whom she had been living and bore a child before her marriage which makes you wonder what possessed her to marry the subject of the inquest.
Also in today’s paper
- Serbia claims to have inflicted significant casualties on the invading Austro-German army – page 9
- Greece tells the Allies her neutrality will be benevolent in character towards them – page 9
- Sir John French proclaims that the Germans have suffered a “very severe reverse” on the British front – page 9 - The Earl of Derby holds a conference about recruiting in Downing Street, but our report is forced to speculate as everybody involved “observed the strictest reticence about what had transpired” – page 9 - A reporter from Salonika suggests Bulgaria’s drift towards entering the war on the side of the Central Powers isn’t universally popular in that country – page 10 - France shows off its aircraft industry to British and American journalists – page 10 - Home Secretary Sir John Simon defends the work of British censors (see criticism the previous day) – page 10 - The Baronet Sir Oswald Mosley, grandfather of the infamous Fascist, dies – page 10 - A report on page 11 reveals that October 21 has been designated “Our Day” for Red Cross and St John Ambulance fund-raising
