31st December 1915

Posted on 14 January, 2016 at 8:21










In todays Daily Telegraph: Aside from a large article on page 11 on “Home Politics in 1915” by J. B. Firth, one of the few writers whose work would appear in the Daily Telegraph in both world wars, there was little to hint at the passing of the old year in the New Year’s Eve edition. As 1916 loomed it was the subject of conscription, or compulsion as it was termed here, that led the news, as the Labour movement had a conference to debate its threat, but no member of the Cabinet had resigned over the issue – page 9. French reaction to the announcement appears on page 11. On a similar theme, “Middle Class”’s letter the previous day on national organisation was evincing great interest (also page 9). Also in today’s paper: - Much of page 7 is given over to action on the French part of the front, with their official account of the Battle of Champagne and the latest despatch from H. Warner Allen - King George V’s request for attested men to wear an armlet bears immediate fruit in London – page 7 - G. Ward Price’s official despatch concerning the evacuation of Anzac and Suvla commences on page 9. Despite there being longer articles before in the paper, the decision is taken in this case to split it in two and finish it the following day - A French landing on a Greek island brings a protest from Athens – page 9. Meanwhile G. J. Stevens writes from there on page 10 on how German agents are preparing the way for Bulgaria to invade the country - The Telegraph can’t get enough of the experiences of British people in overrun Serbia – another report about this appears on page 11
