The Daily Colonist, December 6, 1914

« previous next »

#dailycolonist1914 - News out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years (plus two days) ago today:

  • Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden [that's the guy on the $100 bill] addresses the Canadian and Empire clubs of Toronto. Vows to stand with Britain and will, to paraphrase, keep throwing men into the meat grinder as long as necessary.
  • An interesting article detailing the current methods of trench warfare.  
  • Full-page war technology feature in the magazine section is on aerial combat.
  • The usual excellent round-up of the week's events in the children's section, including acknowledgement of something I mention earlier, that the news from the Russian front is confusing and contradictory.
