In todays Daily Telegraph: The day before Christmas Eve and the season is really making its presence felt in the paper. Page 11 has an article entitled “Soldiers’ Christmas” adjoining a Christmas plea on behalf of sick children, whilst “A Londoner” writes on page 7 on “Christmas in hospital.” Meanwhile with the number of men already on service it is hardly a surprise to see a “huge Christmas bag” of mail sent to them being announced on page 9. Add in a report on wounded soldiers being treated to a Christmas party at the Law Courts on page 3 and the less happy news that London dairymen have to abandon the tradition of a complimentary Christmas pot of cream to their customers, due to supply problems on page 4 and certainly a number of facets of the season are being reported upon. No speculation though as to any repetition of the famous truce of a year earlier though, somewhat curiously. Also in today’s paper - Radicals and Nationalists attempt to filibuster the Commons vote on granting a million more men to the army, leading to a sitting ending with a vote at 5.30am – page 6. - The clergy and military service letter debate comes to a close on page 7, but a leader on page 8 makes plain the Telegraph’s view on the matter - Assorted bankers produced a manifesto concerning the nation’s needs and the duty of all to fulfil them – pages 9 and 10 - More on the heroism of British nurses in the evacuation of Serbia on page 10 today
