NEUTRAL TERRITORIAL WATERS LONDON, Dec. 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 29 December 1939
. . NEUTRAL TERRITORIAL WATERS ' ('Mercury' Service) . LONDON, Dec. 28/ Vierman use or neutral territorial waters for preying upon shipping, in defiance of all principles of international law, is contained in the testimony of survivors from the British steamer, Deptford, one of the three ships, in cluding one neutral, recently torpedoed inside Norwegian waters. The story is corroborated by members of the crew of the Norwegian motor vessel, Farda, which rescued them. This vessel was skirting the Norwegian coast on Decem ber -13 in accordance with the established navigational prac tice in these waters, when she was torpedoed. She sank in about 90 seconds, and there were only five survivors from a crew of 37. In addition, two Nor wegian pilots lost their lives. When she was torpedoed, the Dept ford was only about SS0 yards from the mainland of Norway. It is pointed out that it is possible under certain conditions for a sub marine outside territorial waters to attack a ship within terri...

The earthquake yesterday completely wrecked 12 provincial towns, each of between 15,000 and 40,000 inhabitants, besides 80 villages.

'KILL NOT FUNNY' But Hunt Was Grand ('Mercury' Service) LONDON, Dec. 28. In the course of a broad cast to-night on the activities of the fleet air arm, a com mentator told of a conversa tion with a midshipman of 20 years of age working on the North Sea patrol. ' Tliis . yoifng '.nikn told him, he. said, 'that, the hunt was 'grand. It was the kill that was not so funny.' He, himself, had intercepted' a German bombing plane one after noon. and a grim game of 'touch last' began in a series of gigantic cloud valleys. The enemy banked and dived from one cloud to another, and a relent less pursuit went on, said the- mid shipman. . ; , ... 'I nipped . ahead ; to. .a -cloud 1. thought he would make for,, and waited for him oh tile other side. Gosh, it was fun, I got him as he came through at a ' few yards' range. But when you saw the poor devils spinning down nose first through the clouds with smoke pouring from the engine, it was not so good. I hated that part of the business.' 'That's how...

IN DANGER Finest Turf In The World MAY BE NEGLECTED LONDON, Dec. 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 29 December 1939
IN DANGER Finest Turf In The World MAYBE NEGLECTED (From a Special Correspondent.) fBv Air Mail.} LONDON, Dec. 20. Britains million acres of turf, the finest in the world, is in danger of deterioration. Since the last war the acreage of the country's lawns and sports grounds has been nearly doubled. Now ;he calls of National Service have so reduced the 250,000 from research :hemists to jobbing gardeners, who sre usually engaged in maintaining British turf that costly neglect is un lvoidable. At the outbreak of war, apart from :ens of thousands of private lawns, ilie country boasted 500 golf courses. 1200 bowling greens, 3000 cricket nltclies, 3500 football grounds, and 50.000 tennis courts. Mr. C. E. Littlefield, secretary of the National Association of Groundsmen, said this week: 'Serious deterioration in our 100 per cent, turf standards would be a vir tual disaster. From the purely financial standpoint £4.000,000 of capitnl value could he re duced by half within two years, 'We con...
BULLET-PROOF TYRES FOR BRITISH ARMY LONDON, Dec. 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 29 December 1939
BULLET-PROOF TYRES FOR BRITISH ARMY (From a Special Correspondent.) fBv Air Mail.} LONDON. Dec. 16. Britain has produced after 20 years of experiment a bullet proof pneumatic tyre, j All the army's 15 cwt. lorries have now been fitted with tyres of this, sort. Exact details are naturally an offi cial secret, but it can be stated that, though bullets do not bounce off it, tho new tyre will behave very much as if they did. In the last war army lorries, with an average speed of 15 to 20 miles an hour, ran on solid tyres — which even at that speed sometimes burned out. To-day lorries do 50 m.p.h. on pneumatic tyres. All great armies have been trying to find the 'bullet-proof' tyre. Britain now leads the world with a tyre which will do all the army wants it to do.
