No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Thae acr has brought to ligh: many feats ci exceptional gallantry, but few, if anj, eoceci an incident that occurred a few eeks .go, swhen an 11-inch siege howitzer was captured from the Germans by the French. The capture of such an immense piece of artillery in modemn warfare is a feat only heard of on very rare occasions, hut the French who have always displayed a marked aptitude for attack with the bavonet, accomplished it. The account states that on first sight of the oncoming wall of cold steel, the German gunners attempted to de fend themselves, but before they had time to arm the French threw themselves upon them, and annihilated the lot. "The ground was soaked in blood," continued the account, "und the scene in the vicnrty, with the bodies of the gunners frightfully mutilated, was a ghastly one."
Professor Explains the Ideal Diet for a Fighting Man [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Professor Explains the Ideal Diet for a. Fighting Man It is worth while to consider in the interest of the British soldier whether the ration with which he is supplied is all that it might be. It is a very common practice in the medical profession (writes Professor James Long in the Daily Mail") to recommend a mixed diet; but whether we adopt the advice of great meat eaters, or of those who are not believers in its importance as a food, it is difficult to re gard a ration in which flesh plays such a very conspicuous part as one which comes within this definition. Great pains have been taken in the past by the War Department to provide good and eco nomical meat. Prior to the Boer War I was requested to make an investigation into this question, owing, as I believe, to the complaint made that British farmers did not get their •fair,share of the money expended. It was found as a result that Colonial mutton was more economical than that produced in this country. The point to consider is ...
An Amusing Pork Hunt which Cost Four Lives [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
An Armusing Pork Hunt which Cost Four Lives The-following incidents are admirably typi cal'of the huiian side of life at the front, its humor and pathos: It "*as an action that entailed five casualties. It was fought near Houplines, near Armen tieres, and it was about a pig. The two trenches were face to face, the Ger mans and the English. So near were they that the soldiers talked to one another, made jokes at one another's expense, and even learnt one another's names.. But though Germans and British exchanged jokes there was no abatement of warfare on either side. No sooner was a head shown above either trench than half a dozen rifles blazed at it. Then the chaff would be re sumed. '"What about Calais ?" was the 'taunt hurled at the Germans, a gibe with an unpleasant flavor that they relished but little. - One day an adventurous pig walked on the strip of land between the trenches. British and Germans.alike shot at him, and down he fell, shot half a dozen times. Each. trench wante...
Officers Who Live in Slime for Weeks at a Time [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
_ ficers who Live in Slime for Weeks at a Time Below are some extracts from the diary of an officer at the front. It is finely characteristic of the British spirit of cheerful endurance of hardship. Tuesday. Back to the trenches again to-day. Unluckily the thaw has set in in earnest, and everything is very sloppy. We loaded ourselves as much as possible with grub inside and clothes outside. Just as we were falling-in I found 1 had forgotten my identity disc, which goes round one'sneck next the skin. In order to get it there I had to open eight things-mackintosh, dressing-gown, uniform coat, two woolly waist coats, one shirt, and lastly, two vests. We-marched, off about dusk, and, after the usual sniping, crawled along loathsomely muddy ditches and into our ditches by 9 p.m. Passing through these rabbit-warrens, with their slimy sides and inches of mud at the bottom, is a horrid experience. They are very narrow (one has to force one's way along sideways) and deep, "and 100 yards of i...
WAIL OF STRICKEN MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
WAIL OF STRICKEN MEN. A picturesque description of the repulse of a German tnight attack is thus described by Cor poral T. L. Garrett, 1st Rifle Brigade: "My last interview with the Sorrowful Sam mics (that's what we call the" Germans, because they look so miserable when they are attack-. ing) was on the Belgian border one night two weeks ago. In the shadow of the houses we aw them crawling slowly along as though they wsre deliberately counting each step and its probable cost in wounds and deaith. At last they reached the spot where our distances had been calculated, and the order to fire was given. There was a sharp rattle along the whole line little louder than the breaking of twigs beneath the feet of many-m en, and then swe saw the Sammies stagger bac:. At that moment the moon-came out from behind a blacko:cloud, and we distinctly 'saw the' officers urging the men forward, one usinig a'sword in'a threatening way against a small, party, who didn:t seem to know whether to-charge o...
ALL ABOUT RIFLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
ALL ABOUT RIFLES. It is not generally known that each belliger ent nation in the field to-day is armed with a different make of rifle. Naturally, experts are not agreed as to which is actually the best; thought those competent to judge are inclined to favor the British short Lee-Enfield as the best all-round military rifle extant. The points of advantage of the British gun are its simple but. reliable mechanism, its great strength, lightness, and the fact that its maga zine carries ten shots as against five in all the other rifles. QIt is sighted up to 2800yds, farther than any existing rifle, the German and Belgian Mauser coming next with 2187yds. It fires a bullet weighing 215gr. at a muzzle velocity of 2060ft per second, and it is only here that it is beaten by the German weapon, whose lighter bullet of 154gr. leaves the barrel with a velocity of 2882ft per second. Whereas the British arm weighs, without bayonet, 81b 10oz, the German rifle turns the scale at 91b loz, the French L...
WIRELESS FROM PARIS TO WARSAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
WIRELESS FRCM PARIS TO WARSAW. The wireless station at the Eiffel Tower may be utilised to communicate with Russia from Paris, via British stations to the Mediterranean, instead of by way of German stations. But the Eiffel Tower, hoIwever, could easily get its mes sages to Petrograd direct, for it is tle most powerful station on the Continent. The ter rific "sparking" from its antenna, nearly 1000ft above the ground, is so distinct that those con versant with the 1Morse code can read its time and weather reports in the streets of Paris without any instruments. But there is no powerful wireless station in Russia, and the round-about route will be necessary. The British Government is building a station more than 500ft above sea-level in a remote part of Oxfordshire, which will have a do.-en masts, each as high as St. Paul's Cathedral. This station will be able; it is anticipated, to get. into direct communication with Egypt in the daytime, and possibly with India at niht, when the eth...

Bacilli or Bullets [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Bacilli or Bullets Modern science has done much to banish disease amongst soldiers, and the scourges of smallpox, malaria, and chplera, which in former campaigns have killed mere men than bullets, have lost much of their menace for fighting men. There still remain, however, diseases such as dysentry, pneumonia, and enteric, which.are likely to break out amc.ist bodies of troops inless careful precautions are taken by the men themselves. Dysentry is one of the most terrible of camp diseases, and during the South African War it killed thousands, for during that campaign, out of our 22,000 casualties, bullets accounted for only 8000 ard disease 14,000. Dysentry, which is an inflammation of the internal organs, is generally caused through impure water. Soldiers at the front have been given directions to boil the water they drink, whenever possible, though, of course, there are obvious difficulties in the way of providing every soldier with the necessary heating1 ap paratus. Pneumonia is...

BATTLES WON BY TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
BATTLES WON BY TOBACCO. The value of tobacco on active service is now so well esteemed by the military authori ties that to-day one sees the British Govern ment doing what it had never done befoe supplying free tobacco to the troops. Only within comparatively recent times, how ever, has this necessity been officially recog nised. Wellington condemned the practice of smoking as being "a species of intoxication occasioned by the fumes of tobacco." Official efforts to discourage the use of to bacco were completely negatived in the Cri mean War. The privations suffered then by the troops resulted in. officers and. men taking to the panacea adopted bj their French and Turkish allies, and by its aid their discom forts were so alleviated that ever since the prac tice of smoking on active service has been countenanced by those in command. In consequence, tobacco has played a notable and beneficial part in the wars of the last cen tury-in fact, from Waterloo to South Africa. Probably nts sol...

THE BIGGEST SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
THE BIGGEST SOLDIER. The Ulster Volunteer Force, unbeaten in its record of giving recruits and money since the war began, is also unbeaten in the record for big men. Sergeant J. Bryan Stewart, of the lIth (U.V.F.) Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. 32 years of age, is 6ft lain in height; chest, 43.45in; and weighing twenty-four ttone, he is believed to be the biggest man in the whole British Army at home or abroad. Though of such great stature, he is an International water-polo player, an old 'Varsity Rugby man, a keen motorist, and a sports enthusiast. Sergeant Stewart is an Enniskillen man, and has two brothers in the Army, one a veterinary sur geon, Lieutenant Charles Stewart, serving at the front, and another, Lieutenant Jack Stewart, in Kitchener's Army. Few regiments could beat the record of the 11th Inniskillings in the stature of their men. The A and B Companies, which are all drawn from Donegal and Fermanagh, have several men over 6ft, some giants of 6ft 3in being in the ranks, ...
