Two significant losses for the Royal Navy: The submarine HMS E20 Under the command of Lt-Cdr Clyfford Warren, with the loss of 21 of her crew and HMS Tare.
In todays' Daily Telegraph; Still the Balkans led the news, with the Greek Government losing a vote of confidence and the Bulgarian army advancing on Nish in Serbia, whilst the first British troops were reported to have reached the front there (all page 9), and an account from the Daily Chronicle’s reporter who had visited the Serb front line was reprinted on pages 9 and 10. Further afield advances by the British towards Baghdad were claimed by a sub-headline to be causing anxiety in Germany, although the report (page 10) seems as much to express confidence there that the Turks will hold it in the long run. Asides from this there was little of great note; excepting parliamentary reports and the rolls of honour/gallantry awards one of the longer articles in today’s paper concerned cooking apples! (page 13). The court case of the day was on page 14, where a café proprietress was fined for keeping a disorderly establishment due to waitresses kissing and cuddling the customers.
