London is Fully Prepared for a Raid from the Air LONDON, September 18. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 14 November 1914
London is Fully Prepared for a Raid from the Air LONDON. September 18. Although London and olther cities have not so much to fear from hostile airships as places on the Continent, we cannot close our eyes to the fact that an attack on us by air is a possi bility. That this is so is shown by the pre cautinary measures that our War Department has been taking. Yet, far from causing any thing like panic, the warning notices issued in the Press, and-the subdued light in our streets, give us'a certain sense of security. The know ledge-that we have our own patrols in the sky to warn and to guard us against possible foreign air marauders has a distinctly reassur ing influence. What are the facts, as we-ars aware of them, of' the possibilities of a German air attack h? There is a'rumor that the Germans are secretly building a large number of Zeppelins, but this is an cbvious impossibility. Zeppelins, like wuarships, take time to build. Before the war began, Germany's entire fleet-of Zeppelin...

PORTUGAL AS AN ALLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 14 November 1914
PORTUGAL AS AN ALLY. One of the most curious results of-the war is the entry of Portugal into the ranks of tha Allied combatants. This is no doubt due to English influence, for Portugal and England have been faithful allies for many centuries. The first assistance given by England to Por tugal took place in the reign of Edward IIL.' in the 14th century, and was- repeated on a large scale and with great effect' during th. Peninsula War, when Wellington turned Napo leon's armies three times out of Portugal, and saved her from being annexed to the French Empire. Similar actioh had also taken place 100 years before during Marlborough's wars. Poitugal, althohgh a.small country, once pos sessed an enormous, though scattered empire in the east, which extended betwieen such distant points as St Helena, South.Africa, Muscat (in Arabia), certain ports in India, as far as Macao in China, and included the Dutch Malay Archi pelago. Of this Empire a 'few fragments 'still remain. Portugal holds-Go...

EFFECT OF THE PORTUGUESE ASSISTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 14 November 1914
EFFECT OF THE PORTUGUESE ASSIST S ANCE. The result of the declaration of war by Por tugal is that she can take possession of all the German merchant ships which have taken re fuge in her ports while they were neutral. The advantage o England of the Portuguese al liance is that the islands of the Azores, Ma deira, and rape de Verd are now available for he use of British warships, and they are inost conveniently situated for British cruisers in the Atlantic. "The actual military and naval strength of Portugal cannot be considered an important asset to the Allies. Portugal gains the advantage, that her new-born republic be comes defiditely established by its alliance with Englapd and France, which will-help it to keep down 'the constant efforts. of the Royalists to re-establish the monarchy.
