CAPTAIN H. B. PELLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

CAPTAIN H. B. PELLY. As an old shipmate, I-am pleased to hear of this capable officer beiuig appointed to command the largest battle-crssiser in'the British Navy. Taciturn to a degree, he is a- great believer in work being carried out in absolute silence, and nothing annoyi him more than to hear officers giving unnecessary orders. When I knew him he was commander of the Majestic-and Cmsar, when they carried the flag of' Lord Charles Beresford.. He was a sticker for efficiency, es pecially ingun-laying, and his method of obtain ing it-was by the creation of a healthy rivalry between the various guns'of the ship, and re warding the winners with extra leave. Cap tain Pely is also a good tactician.

MEXICAN OIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

MEXICAN OIL. - The recent protest made by the British Am. bassador in- the United States, against the con fiscation of British oil interests in Mexico b one of the latter country's many presidentst Carranza, has a closer bearing on the war than may at first be apparent. The great oil ree sources of South America, many of which, if not the majority, are in British hands,- con stitute one of the chief sources of supply for the British Navy. Had the embargo not been removed, we shc'auld have been, sooner or later in a pretty bad paight. The stocks and reserves are only suffcient to last for a few months, and as there are certait, ships, which are now solely oil burning, the visible supply would have beet quickly exhausted. It is to be remarked that oil as a fuel is not an unmixed blessing. This because of the vast amount of smroke generated. It is a ship's smoke trail that first betrays its presence on the horizon long before the vessel itself comes into view, and an oil-burning shi - ...

THE MINE FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

THE MINE FIELDS. The general statement that a mine become, useless after a comparatively short period in the water, has to be modified in the light of ex perience. It is certainly true that from the time a mine is laid it becomes subject to the corroding action of the salt water, and that this ultimately results in the lever of the contact pattern being rendered useless. At the same time, it cannot be said with any degree of ex actness what is the life of a mine, in view of the reported instances of mines being found still "alive" months, aud even years, after the conclusion of the Russo-Japanese War. Still; this very uncertainty makes it necessary to periodically ovsrhaul the mine fields, and this is proving one o; the most difficult tasks at pre sent facing our men in the North Sea. The bad weather that has been prevailing there for tho past month or so must have resulted in the shifting of the fields bodily. Those whose duty... it has been to conduct the inspection, have hao, in ...

METHODS OF SIGNALLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

METHODS OF SIGNALLING. The methods of communicating.signals by me chanical means are mny and ailed. In peace time signalling is usua.ly carried out from ex posed positions, but in time of war it is all done from between decks. In the first place, of course, there is wireless; but for obvious rea sonsthis method is not likely to be in extensive use just at-present. The next method of long distance signalling is by means of single flag hoists at-the masthead. Nato ally, from the fact that only one flag is used at a time, thit method is limited in its applications. At the same time, sufficient-meaning can be infused into one flag to convey all the information that is necessary. By night, long-distance signallinag is carried out by means of a powerful search.* light flashing at an angle of 45deg in the air. By day, when working in close formation, the ordinary yard-arm hoists are used, these being worked through holes in the deck below.' -A special war code is used, the knowledge. of wh...

SICKNESS IN THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

SICKNESS IN THE NAVY. There are certain diseases which no amount of cleanliness can hope to combat, and one of these is scurvy, which is caused by the men being compelled to subsist on salt prqvisions. Th" urgent appeal now being made at Home for sugplies oa fruit shows that the authoritiesmare doing their best to keep this disease down as much as possible. It must be remembered that for practically six months these men have been bottled up in -their ships, living on salt pro visions the greater part of the time. Many of the older hands are inured to this condition of affairs, but it is different with the youngsters, to whom the cooped-up conditions and the strain of watching and waiting are new, thus making them particularly susceptible to disease. The layman often expresses wonder as to hots the men behind a big gun avoid being deafened by the detonation. It is generally understood that cotton wool is employed to plug the ears. This certainly would protect them, but it would also ...

A RAILWAY STATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

A RAILWAY STATION. A similar scene to the foregoing is'told by a British officer at the front in a letter reprinted in the "Morning Post" : "On Sunday I attended Sacrament at 830 a.m. It was a dramatic scene : the waiting room of a small roadside stationi, the floor covered with straw and-littered with blankets and men's equipment; a penny-in-the-slot ma chine, and railway notices on the walls, the altar a box or small table. Two generals and members of their staffs and some motor cyclists knelt in the straw during the service, whilst the thunder of the guns continued inces sandy." In a Parisian barber's shop the other day a man who was having his hair cut was giving the barber, with a strong American accent, hin views on the war. "The Allies are not advanc ing," he said. "The German resources are end lessi they will never evacuate Belginin." A British soldier who had come in a moineiit'b : two after the "American" recognised the man; who was asked to show his papers. It was quite t...

Books That You May Read AIRCRAFT IN WAR [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

Books That You May Read AIRCRAFT IN WAR The host of books that are to be had on the matter of aircraft and their possibilities may be divided broadly into two classes, the very good and the very bad. The former may be counted on the fingers of one's hands; the latter are more numerous than all the hairs on all the dogs that were ever in Constantinople. Of the better class, moieover, it has to be admitted that-theiurprime cost puts them above the pocket of .the ordinary mat. For this reason the un reliable class has had the greater sale, to the detriment of an accurate knowiedge of a sub ject upon which no man should be misinformed. At the present moment the mere mention of an aeroplane or air-craft of any description ,brings the mind at once to the theatre of war, and to the various raids that have been made by their means upon the coasts of Great Britain. From time to time various estimates have been made in the Press as to the military value of SZeppelins and the like, all more or...

AS IN THE DAYS OF OLD [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

AS IN THE DAYS OF OLD With a little more experience, and a little more exercise of the powers of restraint, Roy Bridges should develop into a writer of high merit. Judging by what has been published locally, and, more particularly, by "The Fugi tives," which has impressed Hodder and Stoughton sufficiently for them to give it a place in their. excellent series of Colonial novels by Colonial authors, we have -here an author who knows where the find that mate rial, and how to invest it with the clothes of romance. "The Fugitives" 'goes with a speed and a snap that suggests it would do well as a moving picture film. Taken in itself, this may be con sidered a not very high rating for-a hook, but the wealth of.incident and the riot of quick emotions suggest the comparison. The period is that of the later days of the penal settle ments at Port Macquarie and Port Arthur, in the years. of the administration of the island by G overnor Arthur. Hester Whitby goes to Lon don to -hold her lover, ...

NOVEL & INTERESTING INVENTIONS SOLE-LEATHER SUBSTITUTE PRODUCED FROM FELT. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

NOVEL & INTERESTING INVENTIONS SOLE-LEATHER SUBSTITUTE PlO S DUCED FROM FELT. The continuous advancement in the price of shoe material has stimulated the development of a substitute for sole leather, which althutgh much less expensive is asserted to possess wearing qualities two or three times as great as that of hide. The product is manufactured hby a special treatment of waterproof felt, which renders it quite similar in appearance to ieathe,. One of the chief qualities of the sole :s that it does not slip on wet or polished surfaces. it is made in various degrees of flexibility, and tn use may be treated as if it were leather. Since felt is a non-conductor of heat and cold, it is claimed that shoes with these soles will 'e com fortable in both Winter and Summer.

SMALL MOTOR LAWN MOWER OF NOVEL DESIGN. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

SMALL MOTOR LAWN MIOWER OF NOVEL DESIGN. Intended for use in the upkeep of large lawns, golf courses and parks, a motor-propelled grass mower of the hand-implement type has been develoned. It weighs 3501b., has a cutting width of 35in, a speed of three miles an hour, and will operate on a 25 per cent. grade. One man with the mower is 2ble to cut six acres of average turf in a day. The machine is built along the samte general lines as an ordi nary lawn mower, excepting that it is of greater breadth. Its handles are like those of a plough, and are used in the same manner. On the grips of these are the controls governing the engine, which is mounted over the heaive roller and housed. The operator is not required to exert any strength in propelling the machine, the'motor accomplishing that unassisted, and at the same time indirectly turning the knives. It is possible to work around trees and shrublbery much more closely than with a horset-d'rawn apparatus. _ An innocent-looking fisherma...

BOY SENTRY'S FIGHT FRENCH LAD WINS MEDAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915

BOY SENTRY'S FIGHT FRENCH LAD WINS MEDAL. "Allow. me to congratulate you. I'm an old soldier, and fought in the war of 1870." I looked up from the table outside the cafe on the boulevards at which I was sitting (writes the Paris correspondent of the "Daily Mirror"), and saw a pleasant-faced old man shaking hands with a smiling, fresh-colore? boy of sixteon, in the uniform of the 4th Heavy Ar tillery, with the Military Medal on his breast. I questioned the young hero, and he told me his story. His name is Jean Mercadier, and at the beginning of August he was living with his family at Adainville For eight successive days hIe watched the troops marching through the village. On the ninth, day the 59th Aritillery, with their guns and horses, halted at Adainville. Jean was soon in their midst, talking with them, asking them a thousand questions, and burning . to join them. At last he could stand it no longer. He must go and be a soldier, and woen the regiment moved off on their way to the...

Mad Days Round Ypres [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915

Mad Days Round Ypres A British officer writes the following anaz Ingly graphic account of the fighting round Ypres. On November 11 B Company was right in the foremost point with one German trench on our right front only 45 yards away from us. One of our sergeants could not stand the night any longer of one of our men lying dead just in front of their trench, so, without per mission, one night he stole out of our trenches and crept up to the body and removed it from within three yards of their trench. During the 11th we heard that the Emden had been destroyed, and obtained permission to give three cheers, follow it up with a feu de ioie, and finish with "Rule Britannia I" At 6.30 our skipper jumped on to the parapet of our trench and called for three cheers for the naval victory. The remainder of the. brigade were a minute or two late in following our en ample, and in the pause which ensued between our cheers and theirs one could almost hear and feel the horrified hush and silence in...

Midnight Humor from the Trenches A delightfully humorous account of life in the trenches is given in the following letter of a subaltern. Writing at the hour of midnight he draws a most attractive picture of the light Cr side of the war. He says: "I have been flooded out of my bed, and as this little spot on the table seems to be the only one where no muddy drops are falling from the roof of the dug-out I might as well seize the opportunity to write between now and daylight. "The sapper, who appears every night to do odd jobs, brings us all the hhmorous gossip of the staff, to wit-Item : That the Indian divi sion and the Germans weie so close to each other last week that they used the same parapet to their trenches and took it in.turns to fire through the loopholes.

THREE WEEKS UNBURIED. There are over 200 dead Germans now lying between our trenches and those of the Germans. which are only 100 yards apart. They have been lying there for over three ieeks. There are two of our men lying there also. The Ger-. mans were all killed in a night attack, and they have not had the chance to fetch them in.- Private James Chadwich, King's Own Royal Lancashires. Private 4pimmer, of the 2nd South Lancashire Regiment, who was wounded at La Bassee, adn only escaped death by pretending to be already dead, says that prior to that engagement a mao was seen coming towards the 'British lines carrying on his back a wounded British office'. The man was a German, who had lived for years in Battersea, and he surrendered himself, a willing prisoner, to the sound of'a rousing British cheer.
