THE RAID ON THE NIGER AND CO. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 21 November 1914
THE RAID ON THE NIGER-AND.CO. .Numbers of'people are greatly alarmed at the fact of- a German submarine attack upon our shipping-at anchor in the Downs; but it is not a matter for wonder when we consider that the Downs is not a harbor, but simply a roadstead, fringed- by :sndbadbanks. We hear that there were 100 ships there at the time, but their-nature is not stated. Irt is very un likely that the submarine would have picked cut?such an old target.ias the; Niger, if there had been ~aiything better ogffering. The gunboats and monitors recently in action off the Belgian coast were probably there, too, as this would be the nearest place for.themn to retire to, when not required for bombarding duties. Now that their position is.known to the enemhy, it is pro. bable that they willbe moved to other quar. ters. possibly to Dover or Calais;" .
