Aerial Fight Over Thames: Duel With German Aviator [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Aerial Fight Over Thames: Duel With -German Aviator ' LONDON, December 30. An air battle has takep place over the Thames.. German airmen-there were two in one bi plane-the other afternoon carried out a daring raid, trusting to catch the English napping. Thanks to the vigilant watch on the Thames, however, this was defeated and the biplane had to take to flight. That it escaped the shrapnel of the anti-aircraft guns was due solely to thb mist which prevailed at in tervals. The biplane left Ostend at 10 a.m. and fol lowing the line of coast to Calais found the mouth of the Thames via Dover and then cross-country to Sheerness. It secms to have flown at a very great height above the clouds. The hostile craft was discovered hovering over Sheerness Jowards 1.30 p.m. When oar guns oesned fire the enemy was at a heighi of' about 4000 feet--w'l within range. Six shells were fired, and eye-witnesses are convinced, that the raider was winged by the second shell fired. At all events the machine...
THE NAVAL FIELD GUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
THE NAVAL FIELD GUN. It is possible that many marines have been sent to Europe from England. Armed with their field guns, naval men wouil be of great value, but it is possible that the armored trains in use by the Allies are manned by British seamen with their 6in guns. The smallest naval field gun is just over 2lin, aad throws a 121b shell. When the South African war was fought the 4.7 and 6 inch guns were only in the experimental stage, but they performed great work. The former throws a 451b, and the latter a 1001b shell. Since then the 4.7in gun has been developed greatly as a field weapon, and is new mounted on a carriage to facilitate transport. The 6in gun on the armored trains is a naval weapon pure and simple, which would seem to substantiate my deduction that bluejackets are manning them.
Our Economic Future: Official Efforts for Trade Expansion [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Our Economic Future: Official Efforts for Trade Expansion By G. T. M1ilne, F.R.G.S. (H.M. Trade Commissioner to Australia.) + His Majesty's Trade commissioner in Australia takes this opportunity of invit ing all who are interested in the import trade of Australia to make use of his office regarding sources of. sipply, agencies, and other matters in which it can help trade. within the Empire. How the office was ° established, the purposes it is intended to serve, what it has done and can do for the expansion of trade, together with the resources at its command, is told below in the Commissioner's own words. -A British Board of Trade and "Plantations" (as the Colonies were then called), was estab S lished by Charles II., in 1660, but in 1786 this body was superseded by a committee of the Privy Council on Trade, which developed into what we now know as the Board of Trade. The president of the Board of Trade is al ways a Cabinet Minister, who combines the functions of Minister for Comme...
The Herculean Task Now Facing the Allies [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
The Herculean Task Now Facing the Allies It is an axiom of war that to under-rate one's enemy leads to disaster. Yet it is an "aiom that has to be learned over and over again in the bitter school of experience. There is too good reason to suppose that Britain and her Allies have been for a long time mistaken in their views regarding the strength of Germany and her ability to hold out during a long war. We are constantly receiving reports by cable and mail alleging" the rapid "weakening" of our chief enemy in one direction and another. Only this week we hear that,pn desperate straits for copper, after despoiling Belgium of every scrap of that metal, it is now actually being proposed to melt down the bronze monuments of Germany itself. Again, "The Temps," the leading French newspaper, publishes extracts from official "Bulletins des Armees," dealing with the first four months of the war. The report concludes with the statement that Ger many has now "had to call up all her re sources. T...
Experiences of the Defence Force in South Africa [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Experiences of the Defence force n South Africa A letter giving a vivid picture of the early ex periences of the mounted troops of the South African defence force operating in the north of Cape Colony is printed in the Johannesburg 'Star." The writer says : "Some place, this! If this is not the abomi nation of desolation spoken of by the Prophet Daniel, then there must be two of them, and this is the one he had not heard about. They say there has not been a drop of rain for th?ee years, and I can quite believe it! Anyway, we got a shower last night, and it was about the best thing I have sampled in 'showers.' It was pre ceded by a dust-storm--also the best I have seen, felt, or tasted. But in spite of it all it was a sight I would not have missed-no doubt I'll soon tire of the phenomenon. It came from the west; they always do. In the middle was the inky blackness of the rain-clouds, with -the most wonderful lightning streaking in every direction, three and four flashes at one time, ...
Grappling with the Problem of Poverty [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Grappling with the Problem of Poverty * The "Sunday Times" Shilling War Fund is for the relief of cases of distress in families which have lost the aid of their breadwinner, absent on active ser vice. Those who have knowledge of cases in need of assistance should address their communications direct to the Editor, "Sunday Times," 136 Castlereagh-street, Sydney, or to Mr. A. W. Green, at the State Children's Relief Department, Rich mond Terrace, The Domain, Sydney. All communications will be treated with the utmost confidence, and every care will be taken to avoid undue pub licity as to the affairs of those in receipt of relief. "In reading the appeals of the distressed in the columns of the 'Sunday Times,'.one can not help but ask, 'Is the Gospel of Christ a truth or a fallacy ?' Personally, I believe it to be a truth. But where are the administrators of that Gospel, and how is it that all this dis tress and suffering remains among a people who profess and believe in the Lord Jesus C...
Sorrow of the Nations: Ghastly Scenes that Deaden Senses [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Sorrow of the Nations: Gbastly Scenes that Deaden Senses The Place: France. The time: 1914. SNever was there a war like this. All is new, different from any that have ever preceded it. That which changes the physiognomy of the hattlefield is the employment of the trenches, i.where the combatants find a refuge and shelter ofrom the bullets and shells during days and ,veeks. This vast extent of ground seems at first .glance deserted. However, rumblings pass and the earth trembles. A whistling, very soft and fine, mingled with an ominous sonor ousness, strikes the air in every direction. Looking closely, one perceives on the ground in the distance some kind of lines, confusedly moving, and from which are sent out strident noises. Men, agile, supple, and resolute, advance stealthily and silently. They creep, they move awkwardly on hands and feet from a cluster of trees to a slope, from a hayrick to a ditch. :.'hey are armed with shields that protect them from the bullets. The inight len...

Cutting up the Kaiser's Own [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Ctting up the Kaiser's Own From a British official at the battlefront comes the thrilling story of a desperate battle near Ypres, where the British and French al mostannihilated six regiments oi Germans. He says : "'Bearing a mn:.ange from our commander to the English general leading the troops in the region of Ypres, I reache% hi: headquarters at noon. The headquarters are in the open, in a beet field between two cno-moua stacks of straw. One hundred feet away a tottering farmhouse walls serves as ,ielter to my car. Accompanied by an officer of the Royal Service Corps, I crawl on all fours to another straw stack 300yds off, from which I am told the im pending battle can be seen. "On top of the stack an English batter, commander, speaking trucpct and glasses in hand, is directing the service of six field pieces. The trumpet is a necessity, for shells are burst ing 200 yards from the battery, and the noise, is deafening. "The Germans are slowly groping for the range, and in a few. mo...
Representative from the Vatican Arrives in Australia [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Representative from the Vatican Arrives in Australia SOne of the largest and most imposing R-oman Catholic ceremonies ever held in Aus tralia took place last week, on the occasion of the welcome to Sydney of the Papal dele gate, the Most Reverend Bonaventure Cerretti, Archbishop of Corinth, who was appointed by the late Pope, Pius X., to represent the Holy See in Australasia. The Papal delegate, with a party of dis tinguished prelates, Bishops and Archbishops, journeyed across the harbor by the Government stean:er Premier. As the vessel left the Cardinal's wharf, Manly, the flotilla of wel coming steamers gathered round her and escorted her to the city side. It was a picturesque sight. Each vessel was bedecked with flags and streamers bearing such inscriptions as "St. Mary's Cathedral greets Your Excellency" and the like. Throughout the short voyage whistles blew, bands played, and ,:owds cheered. Arrived at Fort Macquarie, a long procession was formed, with bands, Friendly Societie...

The fingers are protected by the leather gun sling.. 2-Thrust and lunge, in which the rifle is throven forward the full length of the arm, and then the bayonet is driven home. 3-Guard, or ready for anything., 4-Parry low, showing how a soldier defends himself against a swing at his legs. 5-Butt strike, or clubbing the enemy in the face with the rifle quickly thrown backward. 6-Parry low ; a quick downward sweep o. the bayonet to protect from a stroke on the left.
Notes on the Naval Side of the War [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Notes on the Naval Side of the War - " ByR.N.R" DIFFICULTY OF TORPEDO FIRING. The Germans made a big mistake when they put a great number of torpedo tubes into their ships, because it is doubtful if they will ever get close enouga to use them. It is possible though that torpedoes erom" submarines and destroyers will play an important part. There is a great deal of difference between firing a big gun and a torpedo. In the case of the former, modern appliances to counteract the rolling of the ship help the gunlayer to a large extent--a factor that is absent in torpedo fire, and in connection with which a rolling motion Is detrimental The reason is because the tube containing the torpedo is set at the angle of fire, and there remains stationary. The sights are adjusted for deflection, caused by the speed of the two ships. It is here that the value of a specially-trained coxswain comes in--one who, by a skilfuli turn of his helm, can reduce the roll to a minimum, immediately he re ceive...

GERMAN SNIPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
GERMAN SNIPERS. In a letter to his mother;' Coporal J. J. Al brecht, 2nd Northamptonshire Regiment, re lates some interesting experiences. On one oc casion he was five days in one trench. "During that time, he says, "I did a bit of sniping, and accounted for seven Germans, who were often to be seen in the tree-tops, in one day. Some of them were.so hungry that they took it.in turns to .run from the flank of their trench to pull up some mangel-wurzels for dinner.

Cold Steel Still the Deciding Factor in Many Fights [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Cold Steel Still the Deciding Factor in Many Fights "'You ought to have seen those Germans run away from our cold steel." This the burden ol many a typical Tommy Atkins' story of the fighting in France and Belgium. And, With 'little Rosalie' we drove the pickelhaubes oat of their trenches every time we coiulk get near enough," is.reiterated in many a French letter sent home by a valiant "piou-piou" to his adoring wife or sweetheart By whatever name they call it, the bayonet has come to be the deciding issue when a battle is fought to the finish. The Briton's "cold steel" and the Frenchman's "little Rosalie," as he dubs the long, sharp dagger at the end of his trusty rifle, has been called upon at the de cisive moment every time. This latter-day war has put the bayonet to the fore again, just when certain military autho rities had been telling us that cold steel has "haC its day," and that "wvith modern high powered rifles troops can never get close enough for hand-to-hand conflict."...
