THE GREAT WAR BLOG

26th November 1915


In todays' Daily Telegraph: Greece provides a satisfactory answer to the Allies’ demands on her (page 9). The Serbian Army is still in retreat (page 9). More on Lord Derby and his recruitment campaign (page 5) and the hostility to London’s drink restrictions (page 6). The Chancellor of the Exchequer claims victory is “assured” (page 10). There is a very familiar feel to much of the news today, even one of the major developments, the Italian capture of Gorizia (page 9), comes after four months’ fighting.
Also in today’s paper
- After Leonard Spray’s article the previous day, Bernard Pares joins in with stories of escaped Russian prisoners of war on the Eastern Front, albeit a month out of date – page 4. Also on that page, the “interesting story” is told of a German captured on that front who took a round-the-world route to return home, only to be captured again in the North Sea
- A 67-year-old soldier is tried for theft in Windsor – page 4. On page 5 comes a report of a jewellery theft in Hatton Gardens
- Success is proclaimed certain for France’s first great war loan – page 7. As if any other outcome would be reported - Perceval Landon reports from Persia on page 11, commenting that it is "sad but easy to follow the aimless impotence of what passes for policy” there - MP’s give Herbert Asquith’s daughter Violet a wedding present – page 11. Hard to imagine something like this a century on - A Judge is proud to produce his third-class season ticket in court – page 13
