25th November 1915


In todays a Daily Telegraph: It was over a week since Lord St. Davids had attacked Headquarters Staff in the Lords, but the outrage at his assertions still persisted. The Earl of Derby, today addressing the Stock Exchange (pages 9 and 10) rebutted his assertions as having “not a word of truth” and referred to a “stabbing in the back” which gave the title to the latest polemical leader (page 8) attacking “one of the most deplorable episodes in the recent history of Parliament” and expressing outrage at the lack of an apology for the claims. Add in a letter adjacent to his also rebutting the charges as “unfounded” and it was clear this story was still very much live.
Also in today’s paper
- We had the buffet at Victoria two days ago, now it is the turn of London Bridge today on page 4
- Ongoing annoyance over London’s drink restrictions leads to an open-air demonstration at Smithfield Market – page 7
- Want of water forces the British to withdraw from a captured position near Baghdad – page 9. According to the Germans the troops, having marched from Cairo, were routed by the Turks – page 10, although the article has an appendix denying this “amazing march” has happened - Page 10 has a report on the Last Battle of the Foreign Legion - Two Daily Telegraph war maps are turned into card games – page 10 - Russian prisoners are used as forced labour in Belgium, reports Leonard Spray on page 12  .
