27th October 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph; the Telegraph considered the news of more disclosures about German plots in the United States as they key story today, giving it pride of place on page 9, with what would be an almost inevitable leader on page 8 on the subject, given the opportunity this gave the paper to embark upon another line of attack on the Germans – “complete disregard of all the restraints of decency and honour” was today’s choicest piece of obloquy.
Also on page 9 France was still announcing success for its troops in Serbia, although former Foreign Secretary Lord Lansdowne was giving a gloomy outlook for that country’s chances in the current situation, and there was more on George V’s visit to France, whilst over on page 10 a meeting was held in London’s Guildhall to initiate “what is intended to be a national campaign for the promotion of the welfare of motherhood and infancy” which had the backing of a number of influential people, Sir Percy Scott was able to inform an inquest into a Zeppelin raid victim that more guns had been made available for the defence of London, details of Edith Cavell’s memorial service in St Paul’s Cathedral were given, and there was a more limited coverage of W.G. Grace’s funeral that you might have expected give the coverage of his death. Otherwise, it was pretty much same old, same old today.
