Notes on the Naval Side of the War HARBOR ATTACK BY SUBMARINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Notes on the Naval Side of the War By "RN.R." HARBOR ATTACK BY SUBMARINE. The failure of the Germans' attack on Dover by means of submarines shows how difficult it is to succeed in this direction. Dover itself is a harbor where the approach of these craft is somewhat difficult to detect, lying as it does open to the sea. Although the ordinary de fences are placed at the breakwater entrances, they do not altogether remove the possibility of immunity from Invasion. It would be a n~uch more difficult thing, however, for our own submarines to attack any of the enemy's ports, because shore defences on either side of the entrances would have to be negotiated before the inner defences across the harbor mouth could be reached. The risk of detection, there fore, would be very great, and the chances of escape remote. It Is doubtless owing to these difficulties that our submarines have not raided the enemy's strongholds. The mere fact of the existence of defences in the harbor, I do not think,...
London's Sea Lubbers Who Watch from the Housetops H.M.S. FLATROOF, London. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
London's Sea Lubbers Who Watci fromnthe Heousetrops H.M.S. FLATROOF, London. War makes strange services. War has made our services. They do not call us soldiers. I should hesitate to claim that.we are sailors. Perhaps we may usurp the Kiplingese title of the marines. Officially we are C.P.O.s and A.B.'s of the R.N.V.R. What we do is to keep watches where London's anti-aircraft batteries are cun ningly concealed, and to pray that the enemy may sail plump into the shrapnel which we are anxious to discharge. Sometimes too anxious. The Admiral of the Fleet-so christened by one of the Ablest Sea men in our gun's crew--had a glorious inspira tio? the o:ihcr day. Tired of going through the mot?ions of loading and firing in a dummy faehion, conscious that he had at his disposal a full belt of live shells in the ammunition tray fixed to the gun, to say nothing of other boxes full of ammunition, he pulled the belt .through the slot, while No. 2 duly worked the lever which barks the knuckles a...
BORDER SCRAPS IN EAST AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
BORDER SCRAPS IN EAST AFRICA. An ealing soldier writes home to his mother from Camp Nganarok. near the German border in East Africa : "I am afraid it has been a long time since I last wrote, but we have been moving some. "We returned to Mile 26 on the Magadi Railway at about five o'clock p.m. pretty tired, to camp there until further notice, but at mid night we were called out and entrained and left by one o'clock for Kisumu. "As we passed through Nairobi we picked tip twenty-five men, among whom was R-, looking quite well. We parted at Kisumu; the men from .lairobi went to Kisi, while we I went in the s.s. Winifred to Karungu Bay on Victoria Nyanza. which the Germans had taken a few days before. "We sriled in and engaged the Germans, w'o had a small boat and also were well forti fied on land. They had very much better and heavier guns than ours, but we kept them at it for two hours, and then retired and went to look for s.s. Kavirondo, which is a very small boat, but is very strong...
Stories of the Border Fighting in Africa [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Stories of the Border Fighting ~ -Africa Mr. E. J. D. Bussell, who was attached to the transport service of the British Gold Coast Force that took over Togoland recently, writes to his father how the Governor of Lome was bluffed and ran away. Incidentally he pays a tribute to his old chum, Captain G. L. E. Sherlock, killed in the Cameroons. "I was" awfully cut up at poor old Sher lock's death. He was such a splendid fellow, 'an officer and a gentleman' if ever there was one. He always used to keep himself fit, a splendid swordsman and lance, and the best jockey in Nigeria. ' He must have got bowled out almost first ball. It is, of course, the fortune of war, and after all war is not so very terrible in itself; it only seems so to super-civilised minds. WAR IS NECESSARY. "War is one of nature's outlets, and is as necessary as it is inevitable. It breeds more fmen than it does monsters. The world is very much like some men-a deal better for an occasional blood-letting. The peace ho?-n...
British Prisoners Who Were Forced Into German Trenches LONDON, November 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
British Prisoners Wh Were Forced Into German Trenches LONDON, November 20. No more dramatic adventure of the war, per haps, has befallen any one than to the Hon. Geoffrey Pearson, son of Lord Cowdray, and Sergeant Major Mackay, of the Army Motor Transport. Geoffrey Pearson is dead, and his body rests in the middle of a great plain, the battle field of the Marne, surrounded by In numerable little crosses which mark the rest ing places of many comrades, French and British. It is Sergeant Mackay who tells the story. "On the retreat from Mons Geoffrey Pearson and I were acting as motor cyclists, and were letting out our machines for all they were worth along a straight road, with open coun try on either side. Supdenly we seemed to ride - Into a perfect hailstorm of bullets. Ahead of us the road ran Into a little wood. "'Come on, Jeff! We'll ride for it!' I shouted, and we -dashed through in safety; but hardly had we entered the wood than we rode into a group of German cavalry, scattered...
HATE AND FOOD [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
HATE AND FOOD There is a chance for some learned man just now to write us a little monograph upon the relationship of hatred and food. The most pecular thing about the German is his food, and we are told in every fresh message from Berli.n of the unexampled, implacable, unparalleled hatred the.portly German i now developing for England. So surely the one must have something to do with the other. Let us imagine the German, purple in the face with "Baseenglandhatredandloathing"-he has probably invented a word something like " that to express the new national lust-:itting down to feed the fires of hate. This is the t.or of thing he does it on. It is imostly un cooked : A mixed salad of rai cabbage, creumber, potatoes and beetroots oaks?l in oil.

PLATFORM REGISTERS TRUCKS PASSING OVER IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
PLATFORM REGISTERS TRUCKS - PASSING OVER IT. An automatic counting apparatus which indi. cates the number of trucks passed over it when a car is being loaded, thus keeping a check on the quantity of flour, for instance, actually t.!aced in a consignment, has been built for the use of large American shippers. The device consists of a hinged steel-plate platform so sup ported by springs that it trips a lever actuating a tally machine whenever a loaded truck is rushed over it. The weight of a man or of on empty truck, however, is not sufficient to operate the machine. When a car is being loaded, the platform is placed in a position in the line of haul and a complete record regis tered of the number of trucks rolled over it. In large shipments disputes often arise through errors made by the checkers for either the shipper or the consignee. The advantage claimed for the counter is that it keeps an infallible re cord.
NOVEL & INTERESTING INVENTIONS PATENT TONGUELESS BUCKLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
NOVEL & INTEBESTIN INVENTIONS PATENT TONGUELESS BUCKLE. Mr. A. D. Wiseman, 147-149 William-street, Sydney, is the inventor of an ingenious patent tongueless buckle, which has found great favor with the Commonwealth Mi:itary authorities. The invention is simply nothing more than a piece of steel shaped like the letter S, but flat tcned out. It can be adjusted to any piece of leather, the operation simply consisting of slipping the leather under the lower "arm,' threading it over the centre bar, and out under the upper "arm." The tighter the leather is drawn, the more securi:y there is in the fasten ing. The invention does away entirely with the necessity for holes in the leather. Mr Wiseman has made the buckle-in all sizes, and, with the object of popularising it, he intends to offer a number of rifle-slings fitted with the hackle as prizes to the various rifle clubs in ,he State. He has also adapted his idea to waist-belts, hamper straps, etc.; in fact, any thing where ordin...

"THE CLOUD" [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
"THE CLOUD" As fine a collection of cloud pictures as has appeared for many a long day is to be foundI in an excellently-produced album of pictures, called "The Cloud." the work of Mr. IH. Phillips, of Katoo:uba. His purpose is io illus trate the well-known poem of Shelley, by means of actual photographs of cloud effects, and the result of his .efforts is very good indeed. The neighborhood of Katoomba is noted for the wonderful variety and beauty of cloud and mist formations, and Mr. Phillips has made the most and best of the material at his door.. his photo of th: "War Clouds," taken some four years ago, well illustrates the possibili:i.s of 'imaginationi; There is not ore of us who has not at somehtime or other seen faces and figures in the clouds a! well as in the glowing coals of the fire;?

THE VULGAR RICH [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
THE VULGAR RICh The trials of Tommy Kyrdagh, the son of Myles Kyrdegh, of Pryndale Abbey, and a mother bailing from the ranks of the "vulgar rich," form the subject matter of "The Dice of Love," which might have been a very fine novel indeed, had the author, E. Bosanquet, proved equal to sustaining the level of the opening chapters of the book. Here we find Temmy home from leave and realis ng for the first time exactly where the dividiLt. line lies be tween the inherited savoir faine of his father and the tactless vulgarity of his moth:r. Temmy develops two dfferent characters. In the one we see the paternal influence and in the o:her the maternal. The former falls in love with Lady Moira, the latter, urged by the mother. falls a victim to the eyes of an unspeakable heiress. Events are precipitated by the death of the father, and the reader naturally looks forward to some powerful writing. Unfortu nately, the situation is too much for the author, let alone poor Temmy, and the whole ...
A GENUINE CASE OF DISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
A GENUINE CASE OF DISTRESS. One of the worst cases that have come to ouro notice is revealed in the following letter. The pity of it is that it does not come within the scope of the ordinary fund, and this means that the case will have to depend upon this notice for any help it may receive. From time to time we receive subscriptions to what we call the "General Distress Fund," but as a rule they are only given at rare intervals, and to meet some case or other that has been specially men tioned as being worthy of help. We hope chat next week readers will have responded to the call sufficiently to afford at least temporary help to this unfort?tnate family. Here is the let trr "I would like to say that I am married, have two children, and that I have been out of em ployment for over two months. We are in des titute circumstances. To give you an idea-how bad they are, I may state that this letter is in the nature of a forlorn hope." The stamp on it represents the last penny we possess. ...
First Detailed Story of the Surrender of Antwerp [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
First Detailed Story of the Surrender of Antwerp Though Antwerp fell early in the second week in October, the official account of the Germans' entry into that historic Belgian city was not written until several weeks later. The latest English files contain the story, the best, perhaps, being that from the pen of a special correspondent of the "Daily Express," which read as follows: After the shelling of the town had continued without a moment's intermission for twenty hours, nine-tenths of the population had fled, but no signs were manifested on the part of the municipality of any desire to surrender. Burgomaster De Vos and Aldermen Albrecht, Cools, and Strauss held a meeting in the Town Hall, or rather in its cellars, at which there were also present M. Franck (now president of the Inter-communal Committee), M. Rubert Melis, the secretary, and other members of town authorities. At this meeting it was understood that the proclamation of the mili tary governor, saying the town should...
