THE GREAT WAR BLOG

12th November 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph: As to be expected more on the sinking of the Ancona was a major story of the day in terms of reportage (pages 9 and 10) but matters parliamentary were no less covered, with a number of articles on pages 9 and 10, as well as the usual lengthy verbatim reports across pages 6 and 7, the most notable of which was a “stern denunciation of an outrageous charge” as Herbert Asquith refutes allegations that Lord Kitchener had resigned in a “highly dramatic scene” in the Commons.
And the powers that be were far from popular in the licensed trade, as an article on page 11 makes it quite clear that it is unhappy with the regulations imposed upon it since the war began.
Also in today’s paper:
- Germans take time out from the war to debate whether handwriting should use gothic or roman characters – page 3
- The paper is still banging on about the lack of protecting the National Gallery is giving its treasures, with another article on page 5 on the matter, kindly giving dates of prior articles at the base. - The intended commander for Gallipoli, General C. C. Monro, is diverted to lead the British troops aiding the Serbs – page 9. Meanwhile there is excitement in Germany over the progress of the fighting there – page 10 - Young unmarried men are warned to enlist or face potential compulsion – page 9 - “Interesting particulars” of the fighting in Mesopotamia arrive in the mail from India – page 10 - The New York Times examines the German mind – page 11
