THE GREAT WAR BLOG

9th October 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph; It was officially confirmed that Serbia had been invaded by Austro-German forces, whilst “for all practical purposes a state of war already exists” between Bulgaria and the Allies. Although Greece proclaimed that she was following a policy of armed neutrality, the war was clearly opening up on a new front in the Balkans at the end of what a leader article described as an “anxious week” (page 8; reports on page 9.)
Also in today’s paper
- “The war has brought the Young Men’s Christian Association into its own” claims an article about the welfare work they have done for the military on page 5
- A letter on page 5 appeals for young lads just out of school to train as waiters, so that the hospitality trade will not have to be reliant on alien employees
- One delegate at a conference of women members of sanitary authorities notes that “it was extremely difficult to get people to recognise that personal cleanliness not only conduced to their own health, but to the health of others” as well as deploring the lack of baths provided by some local authorities in housing schemes – page 7 - A. J. Balfour condemns the Armenian massacres in a letter reprinted on page 8, next to a leader article on the subject which condemns “foul deeds which brand with an eternal stigma the honour alike of Turkey and those Powers whose ally she is.” - The Russians believe Germany is bringing her offensive on the Eastern Front to a close – page 9 - “The income-tax, complicated enough before in all conscience, has now become a veritable maze, a labyrinth of bewildering confusion, through which the most expert of experts must pick his explanatory way with the utmost caution and diffidence,” writes Our Civil Service Correspondent on page 11. Plus ça change… - More recipes for invalids (see October 5) on page 12 today, including Whiting with Oysters and Grilled Fillets of Pheasant. The article does acknowledge they might “appear a trifle expensive at first glance”
