10th November 1915



In todays' Daily Telegraph:The Lord Mayor’s Show in London and the following Guildhall Banquet seemed to excite the Telegraph the most today. Not only was there an entire column on page 9 on the show itself, but the paper thought the speeches made at the banquet so important that five columns over pages 9 and 10 was given over to coverage, as well as a leader on page 8. Readers could find out what Herbert Asquith, Sir John Simon, the French Ambassador, Arthur Balfour, the Lord Chief Justice and Sir F.E. Smith had to say at quite some length, even if their content was hardly anything they had not heard before during the war. Also in today’s paper - The President of the Swansea Metal Exchange has some condemnatory words to say about strikers on page 3 - Leonard Spray in Rotterdam reports on German’s Zeppelin construction policy on page 6, and perhaps not entirely coincidentally next to this comes a report from a Polish Correspondent about German attempts to get Poles working for them - A French newspaper reports that schoolchildren express indignation at the execution of Edith Cavell when they are taught it in their classes in the country – page 7 - The wartime tradition of poems in the paper continues on page 8 with one on “The Splendid Serb.” With “meagre” news on the fighting there on page 9 the main reporting comes from the previous week’s fighting at Monastir - A new scheme of air raid insurance is announced by the Postmaster-General on page 9 - The Military Correspondent calls for a General Staff on page 11 - The entries for the 1917 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas are lower than previous years, and thus used as an example of how the war is affecting horse breeding and racing on page 13
