THE GREAT WAR BLOG

15th November 1915



In todays' Daily Telegraph;As Selfridge’s in its customary full-page advert on page 13 notes, there are only 30 full shopping days to Christmas, and certainly there are a noticeable number of Christmas-related adverts through the paper today. Does this show a determination to keep the festival as much as possible despite the wartime conditions? Perhaps the oddest sounding one comes to page 5, where Robinson & Cleaver advertises its “great handkerchief week.” Yes, seriously. Also in today’s paper - The worst gale for 20 years hits the Irish Sea on page 5 - A Home Office advisory committee details means of getting women into clerical jobs so men can be freed to go and fight – page 6 - A leader on page 8 advocates the Allies taking a firm line with “wavering States and their monarchs” to persuade them who to back in the war - General Russky claims the Central Powers are no longer capable of springing “unpleasant ‘surprises’” upon his army – page 9 - More successes for the Allies in Serbia are reported on page 9 - The Berliner Tageblatt publishes an article which praises Lord Kitchener, so naturally the Telegraph considers this to be “one of the frankest and most clear-minded articles that have appeared in the Berlin Press” – page 9 - A Correspondent pays an “interesting visit” to H.M.A.S. Australia on page 10 whilst Archibald Hurd next to this article considers Germany’s sending to U-boats to the Mediterranean as an expression of her failure to successfully carry out “piracy” around the British Isles - Philip Gibbs sings the praises of the Royal Flying Corps – the “eyes of the army” – on page 10 - Methuen & Sons are ordered to destroy copies of D H. Lawrence’s novel The Rainbow by the courts after the novel is denounced as a “disgusting, detestable, and pernicious work” and “utter filth” – page 12  .
