Der Weltkrieg am 13. September 1914

DEUTSCHER HEERESBERICHT - ÖSTERREICHISCHER HEERESBERICHT


Eine neue Schlacht in Frankreich -
30000 Russen gefangen

13. September.
Auf dem westlichen Kriegsschauplatz haben die Operationen, über die Einzelheiten noch nicht veröffentlicht werden können, zu einer neuen Schlacht geführt, die günstig steht. Die von dem Feinde mit allen Mitteln verbreiteten, für uns ungünstigen Nachrichten sind falsch.
In Belgien ist heute ein Ausfall aus Antwerpen, den drei belgische Divisionen unternahmen, zurückgeschlagen worden.
In Ostpreußen ist die Lage hervorragend gut. Die russische Armee flieht in voller Auflösung. Bisher hat sie mindestens 150 Geschütze und 20000 bis 30000 unverwundete Gefangene verloren. 1)


Der österreichisch-ungarische Heeresbericht:
Die Schlacht bei Lemberg abgebrochen

Wien, 13. September.
Amtlich wird bekanntgegeben:
In der Schlacht von Lemberg gelang es unseren an und südlich der Grodeker Chaussee eingesetzten Streitkräften, den Feind nach fünftägigem harten Ringen zurückzudrängen, an zehntausend Gefangene zu machen und zahlreiche Geschütze zu erbeuten. Dieser Erfolg konnte jedoch nicht voll ausgenutzt werden, da unser Nordflügel bei Rawaruska von großer Übermacht bedroht wurde, überdies neue russische Kräfte sowohl gegen die Armee Dankls als auch im Raume zwischen dieser Armee und dem Schlachtfelde von Lemberg vordrangen. Angesichts der sehr bedeutenden Überlegenheit des Feindes war es geboten, unsere schon seit drei Wochen fast ununterbrochen heldenmütig kämpfende Armee in einem guten Abschnitt zu versammeln und für weitere Operationen Bereitzustellen.

Der Stellvertreter des Chefs des Generalstabes.
v. Hoefer, Generalmajor. 1)


Die Schlacht bei Lemberg

Kriegspressequartier, 13. September. (Priv.-Tel.)
Die Hauptverbindungen unserer Armeen nach dem eigenen Hinterland, der Quelle unserer Kraft, laufen geographisch und daher auch in der Richtung der Hauptbahnen und Straßen in westlicher und südwestlicher Richtung. Diese Verbindungen dürfen nicht bedroht werden; es wäre daher ein schwerer Fehler gewesen, den schönen Erfolgen in unserem Zentrum und am rechten Flügel in der fünftägigen Schlacht an der Wereszyca blindlings nachzulaufen und hierdurch nicht nur die Heldenarmee Auffenbergs im Stiche zu lassen, sondern auch selbst den Gegner in den Rücken zu bekommen. Diesen Weg hätte ihm unser siegreich vorgehendes Zentrum eben durch sein weiteres Vorrücken selbst eröffnet, und die Verwertung dieses Sieges wäre nur mit bald eintretenden bösen Folgen erkauft worden. Es hätte dann wirklich zu einer Niederlage eines Teiles unserer Armeen kommen können, während es unsere Führung bisher stets in meisterhafter Weise verstand, die Gesamtaktion nach großen Gesichtspunkten zu leiten.
Der noch heute bestehende Erfolg unserer großen Siege bei Krasnik und Mokarow ist die genügend lange Fernhaltung des übermächtigen Stoßes der immer mehr von Osten nach Norden verschobenen russischen Hauptkraft. Dieser Stoß richtete sich aber gegen unsere Hauptverbindungen, war daher der gefährlichste. Unsere Erfolge waren absolut reelle: zirka 50000 Gefangene und gegen 300 genommene Geschütze beweisen dies; ebenso sind die bisher angeordneten rückgängigen Bewegungen niemals verschleierte Niederlagen gewesen, da unsere Truppen trotz aller Verluste durch volle drei Wochen fast unablässig kämpften, und zwar in stets erneuten Angriffen. Dies kann auch dem Nichtfachmann genügend die erhaltene Schlagkraft unserer wirklich Übermenschliches leistenden Truppen beweisen, die auch keine Verluste durch unverwundete Gefangene erlitten haben.
Es ist durch die von uns gefangenen Russen jetzt eben bewiesen, daß Rußland nicht nur seine europäischen Korps und deren ebenso starken Reserveformationen vorzeitig mobilisiert hat, sondern daß dies noch viel früher, vielleicht schon im Mai bei den asiatischen Korps geschehen ist. So kämpften östlich von Lemberg drei unserer Korps gegen acht russische viele Tage lang, und die Russen waren trotz dieser Übermacht nur imstande, unsere Truppen zum abschnittsweisen unverfolgten Weichen zu bringen, da die geradezu riesigen Verluste der Russen ihre Stoßkraft aufgezehrt hatten. 2)


Kämpfe in den Kolonien

Berlin, 13. September. (W. B. Amtlich.)
Über Kämpfe in den Kolonien liegen wieder verschiedene englische Meldungen vor. In Kamerun sind dabei drei englische Offiziere gefallen und mehrere Mannschaften verwundet worden. Einzelheiten werden über diese Kämpfe merkwürdigerweise nicht berichtet. Aus den Namen der gefallenen Offiziere ist zu ersehen, daß Truppen aus Nigeria an dem Kampfe teilgenommen haben.

London, 13. September. (Priv.-Tel.)
Die Admiralität teilt bekannt, daß die Engländer am 10. September Herbertshöhe im Bismarck-Archipel besetzt haben. Die Deutschen leisteten Widerstand, worauf die Engländer die Station für drahtlose Telegraphie angriffen und vernichteten. Die Engländer verloren ihren zweiten Kommandanten; auch zwei Matrosen sind tot, drei verwundet. Zwei deutsche Offiziere die fünf Reserveoffiziere und dreißig Eingeborene wurden gefangengenommen. Auf deutscher Seite gab es keine Toten oder Verwundeten. 2)

1914: Irish nationalist seeks German support

In Washington, D.C., on September 13, 1914, the former British diplomat Sir Roger Casement secretly meets with Franz von Papen, the German military attaché, to seek Germany’s support in the effort to win independence from British rule for Ireland.

Born in Dublin in 1864, Casement earned international acclaim for his work as a British consul in Mozambique, Angola, the Congo and Brazil. He was rewarded with a knighthood in 1911. That same year, he retired from diplomatic service, citing ill health. Returning to Dublin, Casement helped found the Irish National Volunteers in 1913 and his trip to the United States in the summer of 1914 was aimed at garnering support for the nascent organization.

In his meeting with Papen—who in 1932 would briefly serve as chancellor of Germany before becoming vice chancellor under Adolf Hitler the following year—Casement suggested that an Irish Brigade be formed to fight alongside the Germans against Britain and the other Allies in World War I. Casement continued his campaign for German support with a trip to Germany soon after; by the time he left, he had persuaded the German government to issue a declaration stating that "Should the fortunes of this great war, that was not of Germany’s seeking, ever bring in its course German troops to the shores of Ireland, they would land there, not as an army of invaders to pillage and destroy, but as the forces of a government that is inspired by good-will towards a country and a people for whom Germany desires only national prosperity and national freedom."

Casement failed to secure Germany’s direct support, however, in the form of sending troops to Ireland. He also failed to recruit any German military officers to assist in the planned Easter Rising, scheduled to take place on April 24, 1916. He consequently aimed to discourage his fellow organizers from going ahead with the uprising, on the grounds that they were not sufficiently prepared. On his return to Ireland from Berlin, however, Casement was arrested by the British and tried in London for treason. The Easter Rising went ahead without him, and was easily crushed by police and government forces. Casement was executed by hanging on August 3, 1916; his body was returned to Ireland years later, where he was given a state funeral and remembered as a hero of Irish nationalism.

First battle of the Aisne, 13-28 September 1914

The First Battle of the Aisne (13-28 September 1914) marked the end of mobile warfare on the Western Front and the start of the period of static trench warfare that would last until 1918 (First World War). On 11 September, having been defeated in the First Battle of the Marne (3-9 September), Hermuth von Moltke, the Chief of the German General Staff, issued orders to retreat to the line of the Aisne and to fortify the high ground north of the river. This was his last act as Chief of the General Staff – on 14 September he was replaced by Erich von Falkenhayn. This was the same day that saw the German 1st and 2nd armies take up their positions on the Aisne and begin to dig in.

The new German line was an ideal defensive position. Any allied attack would have to cross the River Aisne and then attack up a 500 foot high ridge. On top of that ridge was the Chemin des Dames, a road that gave the Germans an easy way to move troops along the top of the hills. The German army had practised entrenching manoeuvres before the war, and quickly dug itself in with Kluck’s First Army to the west and von Bülow’s Second Army to the east.

The battle of the Aisne began before the Germans had reached their new positions on the ridge. On 12 September the British 11th Infantry Brigade had reached the crest of the high ground at Venizel, in the middle of the Aisne line, but the BEF soon became bogged down in the centre of the line. On 13 September the French Sixth Army had attempted to get around the western flank of the Chemin des Dames ridge near Compiègne, but had been stopped by German resistance.

The best chance for the allies came on the right of their line, where the French Fifth Army found a gap between the two German armies, and reached Berry-au-Bac, on the northern side of the river, but the gap was closed by the arrival of the German Seventh Army under General Josias von Heeringen.

The battle continued until the end of September, but it quickly became a side issue. Both sides attempted to use the fighting on the Aisne to pin their opponents in place, while their remaining mobile armies took part in the Race to the Sea. This saw both sides attempt to find an open flank which would allow them to outflank the enemy. By the time the Race to the Sea and the first battle of Ypres came to an end, the Western Front had taken shape – a 475 mile long line of fortifications running from the North Sea to the Swiss border.

BOURG SEPTEMBER 1914: 4th DRAGOON GUARDS -AISNE

On 13th September 1914 the British Army was advancing north from the Marne, with the intention of crossing the Aisne. The Aisne was both a river and a canal, and at the village of Bourg, it was intersected by the Oise-Aisne canal as well.

Before Bourg was 4th Dragoon Guards. Here there were three bridges that crossed the two canals and the river, and part of the Oise-Aisne canal ran over the Aisne river on an aqueduct. Advanced patrols had spotted that the two canal bridges were intact, but that the road bridge over the Aisne river had been blown. A plan was made to seize the two canal bridges, and the aqueduct, which would allow a passage into Bourg itself. The area seemed to be held by German infantry, supported by machine-guns at key points on the bridges.

The commanding officer met with his men on the south side of the Aisne canal and ordered a charge on the outposts that guarded the first bridge. His men were already coming under fire from Bourg, which sat on a high point, but the charge went in and took the Aisne canal bridge quickly. A machine gun from a building on the other side of the Aisne-Oise canal was laying down heavy fire, and the 4/DG were also taking enfilade fire from a second gun on the aqueduct. At this point up rode Captain Pat Fitzgerald, the Dragoon's machine gun officer, who dismounted his guns and soon silenced the German fire. This enabled the infantry to move up, cross the bridges and use the aqueduct to cross the river and enter Bourg.

It was at this point a shot ran out from the church tower in Bourg;

Pat got a bullet between the eyes. I was only a few yards from him, trying to do something for Sergeant Langdon... when someone shouted to me. Fitzgerald was unconscious when I got to him. His wound was no bigger than a blue pencil mark in the centre of his forehead. Then in a moment he was gone.

Captain A.Osborn RAMC, Medical Officer - 4/DG
Unwilling Passenger (Faber 1926)

Ramansdrift police station

September 13 [1914] – South African troops open hostilities in German South-West Africa (today Namibia) with an assault on the Ramansdrift police station.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1914

German South-West Africa

During World War I, South African troops opened hostilities with an assault on the Ramansdrift police station on 13 September 1914. German settlers were transported to prison camps near Pretoria and later in Pietermaritzburg. Because of the overwhelming superiority of the South African troops, the German Schutztruppe, along with groups of Afrikaner volunteers fighting in the Maritz Rebellion on the German side, offered opposition only as a delaying tactic. On 9 July 1915, Victor Franke, the last commander of the Schutztruppe, capitulated near Khorab.

August and September 1914

In the battles of August and September 1914 alone, more than 250,000 young French men died, more than died during the whole of the battle of Verdun in a year. We can now understand just how much of a sense of mourning pervaded French society from the end of 1914. This made it almost impossible to negotiate a solution with the enemy, so that such horrendous losses would not come to be regarded as pointless.The first reports paid tribute to the various soldiers in this initial battle of 1914. Everybody was aware of the defeated von Klück's words of praise for the true victor, namely the basic French soldier, "that men who had been retreating for a fortnight, that men lying on the ground and half-dead from fatigue could take up their guns again and attack when the bugle sounded, is one thing that we Germans had never learned to expect: it was an eventuality that had never been considered in our training schools for war." The communiqué that Joffre sent to the minister for war on the 13th September 1914 ended with his own words: "The government of the Republic can be proud of the army it has organised."

21st Division 1914-18...a divisional history

21st Division was the first of the six created for the Third New Army which had been authorised under Army Order 388 on the 13th September 1914. After the debacle in the trenches and mud at Loos in September 1915 they would go on to be one of the finest British Divisions of the Great War. By the end of World War One they had suffered 55,581 killed, wounded and missing, being the highest number of casualties suffered by a New Army division.

Royal Flying Corps

At the start of World War I the RFC, commanded by David Henderson, consisted of five squadrons – one observation balloon squadron (RFC No 1 Squadron) and four aeroplane squadrons (RFC No 2 and No 3 Squadrons were the first fixed-wing flying squadrons in the world). These were first used for aerial spotting on 13 September 1914, but only became efficient when they perfected the use of wireless communication at Aubers Ridge on 9 May 1915. Aerial photography was attempted during 1914, but again only became effective the next year. By 1918, photographic images could be taken from 15,000 feet, and interpreted by over 3,000 personnel. Parachutes were not available to pilots of the RFC's heavier-than-air craft - nor were they used by the RAF during the First World War - although the Calthrop Guardian Angel parachute (1916 model) was officially adopted just as the war ended. By this time parachutes had been used by balloonists for three years.

BATTLE OF THE AISNE 13TH-15TH SEPTEMBER 1914, TOUR OF THE BATTLEFIELD

Official War Office guide to the First Battle of the Aisne in September 1914 in which the BEF helped the French push the Germans across the River Aisne. The battle marked the change in the Great War between the war of movement and trench warfare.

The First Battle of the Aisne, between 12-15th September 1914, was essentially a follow-up to the Battle of the Marne (8-10th September) in which the German advance on Paris had been checked and then turned back. This pamphlet, maps and tour is the official War Office guide to the battlefield, which was the watershed between the war of movement and the beginnning of trench warfare, published in 1934. Acting in conjunction with the French Fifth army on its right, and the Sixth Army on its left, and under the orders of the French C-in-C Gen. Joffre, the BEF advanced on the 12th, gaining the heights south of the River Aisne, and on the left south of Venizel reached a bridge over the river itself, which was captured that night in heavy fighting. To the left of the BEF, the French had also reached the Aisne between Compeigne and Soissons, while on the right the French had reached the River Vesle between Beaumont and Fismes. By the night of the 12/13th the gap between Von Kluck’s First and Von Bulow’s second Armies had widened to 18 miles, making it difficult for the Germans to man a defensive line along the Aisne. On 13th September the BEF crossed the Aisne, despite heavy opposition from the Germans who had brought up reserves to strengthen their line. On the 14th, hampered by a heavy mist, the BEF made little progress in their advance; fighting was intense and losses heavy, with every battalion but one of the BEF engaged. On the 15th, the final day of the battle, GHQ ordered the BEF to entrench the positions they had reached. Determined German counter-attacks were all repulsed. The guide gives an account of the battle, notes from the 1914 Training Manuals; lessons learned from the fighting; a study of operations at night; and the order of battle for the British, French, and German forces engaged. The pack comes with three main battlefield maps illustrating the unfolding action and five sketch maps showing the stands to view the panorama of the battlefield.

Famous Felines: Mrs Chippy, of Shackleton's Endurance

Mrs Chippy was the tabby cat that accompanied Ernest Shackleton and his crew on board the Endurance when they set sail from the East India Docks in London on 1 August 1914, bound for the Antarctic, initially South Georgia. In spite of the name he was a tough tomcat from Glasgow, and he belonged to Henry McNeish, ship's carpenter and master shipwright. While preparing for the trip McNeish found the cat curled up in one of his toolboxes, as though determined to be included, and that was what made his master decide — having earlier been unsure whether or not to take him — that a cat would be a good companion on the voyage and that he should go along.

(...) There was one crisis during the journey south, when Mrs Chippy seems to have decided the whole thing was a mistake, and made a jump for freedom out of a cabin porthole, straight into the cold and inky-black waters of the South Atlantic. Fortunately it was a quiet and calm night and the officer of the watch, Lt Hubert Hudson, heard the cat's cries and was able to smartly turn the ship around to pick him up. He was in the freezing water for ten minutes or more, but soon recovered — although undoubtedly one of his nine lives had been used up! The incident is recorded in the diary of Thomas Orde-Lees, 13 September 1914 (in which he refers to the cat as 'she'). (...)

Creation of the Canadian Corps, September 1915

On September 13, 1915, Lieutenant-General Alderson opened the Canadian Corps Headquarters. The new formation comprised the 1st Division (Major-General A.W. Currie), 2nd Division (Major-General R.E.W. Turner) and Corp Troops under the command of Major-General M.S. Mercer. Mercer's Corp Troops included the Canadian Cavalry and the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery Brigades, as well as a group of infantry and dismounted cavalry units, which would later form the 7th and 8th Brigades of the future 3rd Division. By the beginning of November 1915, the Canadian Corps comprised 1,354 officers and 36,522 other ranks.

Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl (Llandaff, Zuid-Wales, 13 september 1916 – Buckinghamshire, 23 november 1990) was een Brits schrijver geboren uit Noorse immigranten. (...)

Roald Dahl werd in 1916 in Llandaff, Cardiff (Wales) geboren als kind van Noorse ouders, Harald Dahl en Sofie Magdalene Dahl-Hesselberg. Roald werd vernoemd naar de poolreiziger Roald Amundsen, een nationale held in Noorwegen. Hij sprak thuis Noors met zijn ouders en zussen. (...)

Vanaf zijn achtste werd Roald naar verscheidene kostscholen in Engeland gestuurd, met inbegrip van Saint Peter's in Weston-super-Mare. Later bezocht hij Repton in Derbyshire. Tijdens zijn jaren daar zou Cadbury, een chocoladeproducent, af en toe dozen nieuwe chocolade naar de school sturen, die door de leerlingen getest konden worden. Dit was een inspiratie voor zijn derde kinderboek Sjakie en de Chocoladefabriek. (...)

13 september 1916: Geen plaats voor The Masses

Het Amerikaanse revolutionaire tijdschrift The Masses, door zijn beroemdste medewerker John Reed in 1911 "oprecht, arrogant, en impertinent" genoemd, zag als hoogste doel "te zeggen wat het denkt en niemand naar de mond te praten". Tijdens de eerste wereldoorlog werd die houding The Masses fataal. Het septembernummer 1916 beschrijft een rechtszaak tegen de nieuwskiosken in New York die het blad wegens zijn fervente antimilitarisme niet wilden verkopen. In 1918 weigerden de posterijen The Masses te versturen en daarmee luidde de doodsklok voor het legendarische blad.

FATIMA - Apparition of 13 September 1917

Despite the ridicule and jokes of the secular, atheistic press, more than 30,000 people gathered in the Cova for the September apparition. Whether drawn by devotion or curiosity, they prayed the rosary while awaiting the arrival of the visionaries and their vision. When at least the time came they could hear Lucia say,

"What do you want of me?"

Continue the Rosary, my children. Say it every day that the war may end. In October Our Lord will come, as well as Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world.

God is pleased with your sacrifices, but He does not want you to wear the cords to bed. Keep them on during the day.

"I have the petitions of many for your help. Will you assist a little girl who is deaf and dumb?"

She will improve within the year.

"And the conversions that some have asked to have brought about? The cures of the sick ones?"

Some I will cure, and some I will not. In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe.

With these last words still ringing in their ears, the Lady rose and disappeared in the heavens, as Lucia called to the crowd, "If you wish to see her --- look! Look!"

http://www.ewtn.com/fatima/apparitions/September.htm

Letter of Monsignor João Quaresma (1932)

In this letter, written in 1932, Monsignor John describes what he saw and heard on September 13th, 1917. At that time he was Vicar General of the Diocese of Leiria, to which Fátima belonged, and would later serve on the canonical commission of inquiry.

Fifteen years have passed since the extraordinary events of Fátima. Heavy clouds hung over Portugal and her people, while sadness and despair reigned in our country. In the midst of this darkness innumerable prayers were offered to God, asking for help and for mercy.

Men hoped for a ray of light in the storm which human passions had provoked. The Lord heard the prayer of His servants, and in the sky of Fátima there appeared, like the rainbow after the flood, a vision of Peace. The vision spoke to three children, and at once the terrible clouds began to disperse and souls breathed again as the burden of sadness was laid aside. Eyes, longing for the light, searched the skies where the morning star shone.

Now, may it not be that these simple children were mistaken? May they not have been victims of an illusion? Yet it is always possible that our Lady may come to earth to bring us a message. Could there be some truth in what the children said? How explain these ever-growing multitudes that filled the Cova every thirteenth day of the month declaring that they witnessed extraordinary phenomena?

So on a beautiful September morning we left Leiria in a rickety carriage drawn by an old horse, for the spot where the much-discussed apparitions were said to take place. Father Gois found the dominating point of the vast amphitheatre from which we could observe events, without approaching too nearly the place where the children were awaiting the apparition.

At midday there was complete silence. One only heard the murmur of prayers. Suddenly there were sounds of jubilation and voices praising the Blessed Virgin. Arms were raised pointing to something in the sky. "Look, don't you see?"

"Yes, yes, I do... !" Much satisfaction on the part of those who do. There had not been a cloud in the deep blue of the sky and I, too, raised my eyes and scrutinised it in case I should be able to distinguish what the others, more fortunate than I, had already claimed to have seen.

With great astonishment I saw, clearly and distinctly, a luminous globe, which moved from the east to the west, gliding slowly and majestically through space. My friend also looked, and had the good fortune to enjoy the same unexpected and delightful vision. Suddenly the globe, with its extraordinary light, disappeared.

Near us was a little girl dressed like Lucia, and more or less the same age. She continued to cry out happily: "I still see it! I still see it! Now it's coming down... !"

After a few minutes, about the duration of the apparitions, the child began to exclaim again, pointing to the sky: "Now it's going up again!"---and she followed the globe with her eyes until it disappeared in the direction of the sun. "What do you think of that globe?" I asked my companion, who seemed enthusiastic at what he had seen. "That it was our Lady," he replied without hesitation.

It was my undoubted conviction also. The children had contemplated the very Mother of God, while to us it had been given to see the means of transport---if one may so express it---which brought her from heaven to the inhospitable waste of the Serra da Aire. I must emphasize that all those around us appeared to have seen the same thing, for one heard manifestations of joy and praises of our Lady. But some saw nothing. Near us was a simple devout creature, crying bitterly because she had seen nothing.

We felt remarkably happy. My companion went from group to group in the Cova and afterwards on the road, gathering information. Those he questioned -were of all sorts and kinds, and of different social standing, but one and all affirmed the reality of the phenomena which we ourselves had witnessed.

With immense satisfaction we set off for home after this pilgrimage to Fátima, firmly resolved to return on the 13th of October for further confirmation of these facts.

http://www.ewtn.com/fatima/apparitions/letter.htm

13 September 1917

On September 13 very large crowds began to converge on Fatima from all directions. Around noon the children then arrived, and after the customary flash of light, they saw Mary on the holmoak tree. She spoke to Lucia: "Continue to pray the Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war. In October Our Lord will come, as well as Our Lady of Dolours and Our Lady of Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world. God is pleased with your sacrifices. He does not want you to sleep with the rope on, but only to wear it during the daytime."

Lucia then began to put forward the petitions for cures, to be told: "Yes, I will cure some, but not others. In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe." With that she rose, moved to the east, and disappeared.

The Story of the Apparitions of Fatima - In Lucia's Own Words

The 13th of September, 1917
As the hour approached, I set out with Jacinta and Francisco, but owing to the crowds around us we could only advance with difficulty. The roads were packed with people, and everyone wanted to see us and speak to us. There was no human respect whatsoever. Simple folk, and even ladies and gentlemen, struggled to break through the crowd that pressed around us. No sooner had they reached us than they threw themselves on their knees before us, begging us to place their petitions before Our Lady. Others who could not get close to us shouted from a distance:

"For the love of God, ask Our Lady to cure my son who is a cripple!" Yet another cried out: "And to cure mine who is blind!... To cure mine who is deaf!... To bring back my husband, my son, who has gone to the war!... To convert a sinner!... To give me back my health as I have tuberculosis!" and so on.

All the afflictions of poor humanity were assembled there. Some climbed up to the tops of trees and walls to see us go by, and shouted down to us. Saying yes to some, giving a hand to others and helping them up from the dusty ground, we managed to move forward, thanks to some gentlemen who went ahead and opened a passage for us through the multitude.

Now, when I read in the New Testament about those enchanting scenes of Our Lord's passing through Palestine, I think of those which Our Lord allowed me to witness, while yet a child, on the poor roads and lanes from Aljustrel to Fatima and on to the Cova da Iria! I give thanks to God, offering Him the faith of our good Portuguese people, and I think: "If these people so humbled themselves before three poor children, just because they were mercifully granted the grace to speak to the Mother of God, what would they not do it they saw Our Lord Himself in person before them?"

Well, none of this was called for here! It was a distraction of my pen, leading me away where I did not mean to go. But, never mind! It's just another useless digression. I am not tearing it out, so as not to spoil the notebook.

At last, we arrived at the Cova da Iria, and on reaching the holmoak we began to say the Rosary with the people. Shortly afterwards, we saw the flash of light, and then Our Lady appeared on the holmoak.

"Continue to pray the Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war. In October Our Lord will come, as well as Our lady of Dolours and Our Lady of Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world. God is pleased with your sacrifices. He does not want you to sleep with the rope on, but only to wear it during the daytime."

"I was told to ask you many things, the cure of some sick people, of a deaf-mute..."

"Yes, I will cure some, but not others. In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe."

Then Our lady began to rise as usual, and disappeared.

John Moyney VC – won 13 September 1917

Irishman Lance Sergeant John Moyney VC aged 22 served in the 2nd Battalion, Irish Guards.

On 12/13 September 1917 north of Broembeek, Belgium:

Lance-Sergeant Moyney was in command of 15 men forming two advanced posts. Surrounded by the enemy he held his post for 96 hours, having no water and very little food.

On the fifth day, on the enemy advancing to dislodge him, he attacked them with bombs, while also using his Lewis gun with great effect.

Finding himself surrounded, he led his men in a charge through the enemy and reached a stream, where he and a Private (Thomas Woodcock) covered his party while they crossed unscathed, before crossing themselves under a shower of bullets.

His Victoria Cross is displayed at the The Guards Regimental Headquarters Irish Guards RHQ London.

EYES OF THE ARMY:
The Life and Letters of World War I Aerial Observer Lt. Mortimer M. Lawrence


September 13, 1917 - Thursday

Dear Folks:-

Received your letter last night and it seems mighty good to hear from you again. I hope you put all the Citizens from the 1st in the suitcase. Also when you have read them please send me the Cosmo and the Metro.

Everything is going along fine here. We are working mostly on radio both theory and practice but we can stand lots of work on that as it is slow and rather hard to pick up.

I am sorry everyone expects so much of me for as Mrs. Mills says it is rather hard to live up to but I am doing my best and that is all anyone can do.

Uncle John may be able to help me later but even the President himself could do nothing for me right now, it is all up to me.

Today we had our first taste of observing work. Six of us were detailed to go over to the 8th Artillery on the range and spot hits for a while more to find out what was wanted than for any other reason. Of course today we were on the ground with the battery using Field Glasses and when we really get to work we will be in the air above the target.

I can hardly wait for the time when I will take my first flight, but I suppose it will come soon enough when you consider all we have to do before that time.

I have lots of work to do tonight so will call this off.

Love to all,

Mortimer.

De Nederlandse berichtgeving over de Armeense genocide

De Telegraaf, 13 september 1915: De treurige toestand der Armeniërs

LONDEN, 12 September. (Eigen tel. – Van onzen V.-correspondent) De "Times" verneemt uit Genève, dat de noodkreten om hulp der Armeniërs steeds dringender worden. De bewoners van Armenië, Cilicië en de kuststreek zijn van alles beroofd en worden grootendeels naar het binnenland van Mesopotamië gedreven. De toestand der blijvende bevolking is treurig; velen sterven aan besmettelijke ziekten.

LONDEN, 12 September. (Eigen tel. – Van onzen V.-correspondent) De "Times" verneemt uit Milaan: Aan de "Corriere della Sera" wordt uit Boekarest gemeld : 800,000 Armeniërs werden van Caesaren, Trebdzonde, Erzeroem en andere steden van Klein-Azië naar het binnenland gevoerd. Nauwelijks een derde bereikte de plaats van bestemming. Vrouwen en meisjes werden naar de Turksche harems te Constantinopel overgebracht.

AUCKLAND WEEKLY NEWS - 13 SEPTEMBER 1917

BAXTER, Capt Headley, Royal Warks. Regt, formerly resident at Ashburton, has been killed in action.

KEMPTHORNE, Lt Harold of the Field Artillery, son of Archdeacon Kempthorne of Brightwater near Nelson, has been killed in action.

VICTORIA CROSS - Nine awards of the Victoria Cross have been made. The recipients include Corporal Leslie Wilton ANDREW of the NZ Infantry. He showed conspicuous bravery while in charge of a small party taking an enemy position. Andrew’s objective was a machine-gun post which had been located in an isolated building. Leading his men forward he encountered unexpectedly a machine-gun post which was stopping the advance of another company. Andrew immediately attacked, capturing the machine-gun and killing several of the crew. He then continued the attack on the machine-gun post which was the original objective and displayed great skill and determination. He finally captured the post and killed several of the enemy, putting to flight the remainder. Andrew’s conduct throughout was unexampled for cool daring, initiative, and fine leadership, and was a magnificent example and a fine stimulant to his comrades.

A soldier named Frederick WALLACE, aged 20, was drowned in the Mataura River on Monday. Accompanied by Joseph MURNEY, another soldier on leave, Wallace was crossing the traffic bridge when his hat was blown into the river. He proceeded down a gravel beach to intercept the hat and waded into the stream. He was swept off his feet and carried down the river and drowned before assistance could be rendered.

Spoorwegongeval Weesp 1918

Op vrijdag 13 september 1918 vond bij de brug over het Merwedekanaal (later Amsterdam-Rijnkanaal genoemd) een spoorwegongeval plaats van voor Nederland tot dan toe ongekende orde. Toen trein 102 ’s ochtends om ongeveer 10.30 uur met een snelheid van 55 à 60 km/uur de helling naar de brug op reed, voelde het locomotiefpersoneel op zo’n 30 meter van de brug dat de machine plotseling wegzakte en naar rechts overhelde. Dit gebeurde ter hoogte van blokpost CB bij de brug. Het spoorbaantalud was over een lengte van ongeveer 95 meter volledig verzakt en weggeslagen. Trein 102 stortte in zijn geheel van de spoordijk. In totaal waren bij deze ramp 41 doden en 42 gewonden te betreuren.

Field Marshal Lord NICHOLSON of Roundhay (1845-1918)

Lord Nicholson was essentially a man who did not bid for popular applause. He was a fine speaker with a good sense of humour but he played little part in Corps affairs. Nevertheless, the distinguished officers under whom he served not only admired his talents but had the warmest appreciation of his personal characteristics.

He was probably unique in that he never commanded a unit, either in peace or war, yet he rose to be a Field Marshal; he never graduated from the Staff College yet rose to be Chief of the Imperial General Staff. He died on 13 September 1918, aged 73.

M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle

By July 1918, the BAR began to arrive in France and the first unit to receive them was the U.S. Army’s 79th Infantry Division, which took them into action for the first time on 13 September 1918. The weapon was personally demonstrated against the enemy by 2nd Lieutenant Val Allen Browning, the inventor's son. Despite being introduced very late in the war, the BAR had made an impact disproportionate to its numbers; it was used extensively during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive and made a significant impression on the Allies (France alone requested 15,000 automatic rifles to replace their notoriously unreliable Chauchat machine rifle).

Frederick Maurice, Daily Chronicle (13th September, 1918)

He (David Lloyd George) did right in doing homage to Marshal Foch, but his omission to make any reference to the prominent part played by Sir Douglas Haig in the achievement of the recent victories was very marked. It is a small mind that petulantly refuses to acknowledge the services of a great soldier.

U.S. President Woodrow Wilson visits Seattle on September 13, 1919.

On Saturday September 13, 1919, at 1:30 p.m., President Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) arrives by train at King Street Station in Seattle. Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States (1913-1921), is the fifth President to visit Seattle. The President participates in a parade held in his honor that proceeds north on 2nd Avenue to Stewart Street, west one block, then south on 1st Avenue to Yesler Way. The President stands in the open automobile for the entire parade acknowledging people with a wave or a nod.

The Largest Fleet

The President then went down to Elliott Bay to review the 51 U.S. Navy vessels with 5,000 sailors, the largest fleet ever assembled on the Pacific Coast. The fleet included seven battleships, the Oregon, Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina, Vermont, Wyoming, New Mexico, Mississippi, and the Idaho. Later in the day Woodrow Wilson, accompanied by Secretary of Navy Josephus Daniels (1862-1948) and seven U.S. Navy Admirals, attended dinner at The Hippodrome (500 University Street).

Wilson's League of Nations

The President’s main purpose in visiting Seattle was to gain public support for the World War I peace treaty and for the establishment of the League of Nations. Democrat Wilson presented the Treaty of Versailles to the Republican dominated U.S. Senate on July 10, 1919. The treaty would strip Germany of her colonies, require Germany to pay reparations for damage done during the war, and create the League of Nations to execute the treaty and to prevent future wars. The Senate objected to the League of Nations as an invasion of U.S. sovereignty and refused to approve it. The President decided to take his message directly to U.S. citizens to gain public support and to force the Senate to ratify the treaty.

Stumping the Nation

He first headed West on his national speaking tour. In Seattle, he gave a speech in support of the Peace Treaty and the League of Nations to a crowd of 7,000 at The Arena (east side of 5th Avenue between Seneca and University streets). The League to Enforce Peace upon the League of Nations sponsored the event.

After spending the night at the New Washington Hotel (renamed Josephinum) at 1902 2nd Avenue, he attended church and the Sunday sermon by Pastor Mark A Matthews (1876-1940) at the First Presbyterian Church on Spring Street and 7th Avenue. President Wilson then took an automobile tour of Seattle before boarding the train at King Street Station at 10 a.m.

Exhaustion

President Wilson was on a grueling schedule, traveling 8,000 miles and delivering 40 addresses. On September 25, 1919, he would nearly collapse following a speech at Pueblo, Colorado and on October 2, 1919, Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke that incapacitated him for many months. Wilson’s attempt to form the League of Nations failed.

The Great Flu Pandemic

Louisiana

On September 14th, the steamship Harold Walker arrived at the New Orleans Quarantine station from Tampico, Mexico. The ship had left Boston on September 1st; influenza was widespread in Boston at that time. Since leaving Boston, three deaths had occurred on board the ship. By the time she ship arrived in New Orleans, several members of the crew were ill, with temperatures ranging from 99.6 to 103.28. All of these patients complained of pain in the head, cough, pains in the chest, back and extremities. Although state officials pointed to the steamship's arrival as the cause of the pandemic in the city, influenza had probably arrived earlier, during the first week of September. Certainly, by the following week, the state was reporting that "cases have been reported from a number of places in the State." By the second week of September, the disease was epidemic at Alexandria, Pineville, Lake Charles and other places. That week, "15,494 cases were reported officially in Louisiana." State officials glumly noted that the disease could be found across the state.

Attempts were made to test a vaccine in New Orleans and on December 12th, a PHS officer sent a telegram to Surgeon General Blue, indicating that the vaccine would be tested at the Louisiana Hospital for the Insane at Jackson. The vaccine was tested there but it proved ineffective.

Influenza had been widespread throughout the state during the fall. Cases gradually lessened during the winter and spring. By the summer, the disease had disappeared from the state.

State officials continued to be concerned about influenza long after the pandemic had subsided. In September, 1919, a year after the pandemic, they rigorously tracked and reported all influenza cases (this was a dramatic change from past practices). On September 13, 1919, a PHS officer in New Orleans panicked and sent to the following telegram to Surgeon General Blue: TEN CASES INFLUENZA...DOCTOR KIBBE REPORTS SPREADING RAPIDLY. There is no evidence of a response but the reporting of just ten cases indicates an extreme vigilance on the part of public health experts. State officials and local physicians no longer viewed influenza as a mild disease.

The Statesman, 100 Years Ago | 13 September 1918

On this day a century ago, these were some of the news items The Statesman readers got to read about India and the world. (...)

SPLENDID RECRUITING RETURNS - The Punjab returns show that the provincial recruiting clock will be ahead of time for the first quarter of the current twelve months. We understand that special companies have been sanctioned for the following Ambala classes, viz., Jagirdars, Rors, Kambohs and Hindu Gujars. These are classes who have not hitherto enlisted freely, and the formation of these special companies is a concession on the part of the military authorities with a view to facilitating terr itor ial recruiting.
The recruiting results in the Punjab for August appear again to have been exceptionally good, and there is every probability that the provincial quota will again have been exceeded. As already indicated enrolments in the Ferozepore district will eclipse all previous records for any district in India, over 2,500 men having been obtained from this district in August, while the enlistments in the first week of September are reported to be equally good. Amongst other districts which in August have beaten all their previous records are Jullundur, Sialkote, Lyallpur, Attock and Mianwali. Gurgaon and Gujrat have furnished more than 1,000 men each, while Jullundur’s total is also expected to exceed this total. (...)

GLOOMY REPORTS OF ENEMY’S FOOD SITUATION - German Majority Socialists and Trade Unionists have memorialised Count Hertling declaring that the conditions of life of large masses of the population are extremely critical owing to food shortage by which the mortality of children and aged persons has increased and the health of works has been grievously affected. They say the situation is bound to become fatal unless the Government abandon the policy of favouring producers. It is thought in London that the above is probably part of a new German peace offensive with the object of arousing sympathy abroad. It is noteworthy in this connection that the gloomiest accounts of the food situation in Austria continue to be received via Germany.

FREDERICK CARR – Died 13th September 1916

Frederick (Fred) Carr was the son of James Kenyon Carr, born in Liverpool, and his wife Sarah Jane, born in either in Ireland or Preston. The couple married in around 1892 and, in addition to Fred, thought to have been born in 1893, the couple had one more child, Edith Mary, who was born in about 1904. Fred was born and bred in Hoylake and became a joiner like his father. By 1911, James seems to have had his own workshop on Sea View in Hoylake, but Fred was employed as a carpenter by Simon Linekar, an undertaker and builder whose premises were at 54 Market Street, Hoylake and whose telephone number was Hoylake 23X.

Frederick Carr Picture 1The Carr family lived at 31 Ferndale Road, having moved there in 1901 and they would remain there until 1916.

Among his close neighbours were John Hore, who lived at 11 Ferndale Road, and Laurence Lucas, who lived opposite the Carr family at 30 Ferndale Road. All three would be killed during the war.

Due to the lack of records, we cannot tell when Fred joined up, but he did so in Liverpool and it was probably soon after the outbreak of war, as we know he began his service in France on 28th August 1915 and his basic military training would have taken nearly one year.

He was a member of the A/74th Brigade of the Royal Field Artillery, where he served as a Corporal, but on 13th September 1916, he was killed in action at Guillemont in France, yet another victim of the Battle of the Somme. From mid-July to mid-September 1916, which included the fighting for Guillemont, thirty-two British divisions had been engaged and lost 126,000 men; the British were bogged down, having advanced only 1,000–1,500 yards on a 12,000-yard front.

The Birkenhead News said that he “was a fine, big fellow”. It went on to describe his death: “he was sitting on the gun carriage with some comrades, enjoying a few minutes of well-deserved rest, when a German bomb dropped in the pit, instantly killing him and wounding two of the others. The sender of the sad news paid a very high tribute to the young soldier’s character and ability and spoke of the great esteem he was held in by all who came into daily contact with him.” The article finished with the words, “To his parents and only sister sincere expressions of deep sympathy are heard on all sides.”

13 SEPTEMBER JARIG: JEAN FALBA, WILHELM FILCHNER EN ROALD DAHL

Wie kent hem niet? De Grote Vriendelijk Reus die in de nacht mooie dromen uitdeelt aan kinderen en snoskommers eet die hij eigenlijk smeerlijk, walgzaam en vuillappig vindt. De kinderboeken van Roald Dahl, zoals De Grote Vriendelijke Reus, Matilda en Sjakie en de Chocoladefabriek zijn bekend over de hele wereld. De auteur van de boeken, Roald Dahl, werd geboren op 13 september 1916.

De Franse generaal Jean Falba, de Duitse verkenner Wilhelm Filchner en de Britse schrijver Roald Dahl hebben weinig met elkaar gemeen, behalve hun geboortedatum: 13 september.

Jean Falba (1766-1848) was een Franse generaal en werd geboren op 13 september 1766 in Frankrijk. Hij trad op 24-jarige leeftijd vrijwillig in dienst van het Franse leger. Hij werd gestationeerd op het eiland Hispaniola en bevocht daar een slavenopstand. Hierna keerde hij terug naar Frankrijk en maakte hier snel promotie. In 1804 werd hij bevorderd tot kolonel in het Grand Armée van Napoleon Bonaparte, waarmee hij deelnam aan de mislukte veldtocht van Napoleon naar Rusland in 1812. In augustus 1813 werd hij gestationeerd in Nederland, waar hij onder andere een strafexpeditie naar Woerden ondernam. De Franse bezetters verloren een aantal belangrijke steunpunten, maar waren niet van plan om het strategisch belangrijke Woerden op te geven. De legereenheid nam de stad in en de gebeurtenis die daar op volgde staat bekend als De ramp van Woerden. Er werd wraak genomen op de burgers en de stad werd de drie hierop volgende dagen geterroriseerd door de Fransen. Ze plunderden, verkrachtten en vermoordden de Woerdense bevolking. Pas vier dagen later was Woerden weer in Nederlandse handen. In 1830 verliet hij na veertig jaar trouwe dienst het Franse leger en ging met pensioen. 9 oktober 1848 overleed Jean Falba in Versailles.

Wilhelm Filchner - Wilhelm Filchner (1877-1957) werd in Duitsland geboren op 13 september 1877. Hij was een ontdekkingsreiziger die onder andere naar Rusland, Antartica en Centraal-Azie reisde. Zijn eerste reis ondernam hij toen hij 21 was. Dit was een reis van zeven weken door Rusland. Hij had de smaak te pakken en twee jaar later maakte hij een reis te paard naar het Pamirgebergte in Centraal-Azie. Daar leidde hij van 1903 tot 1905 Filchner een expeditie naar Tibet. Na deze reis maakte hij plannen om een reis naar Antartica te ondernemen, om te bepalen of Antartica uit een stuk land bestond. In 1911 vertrok de expeditie en zij waren de eersten die verder kwamen dan James Weddells die 80 jaar eerder de het diepst in Antartica was doorgedrongen. Het schip raakte vast in een ijspakket en pas twee jaar later, in 1913, kon Filchner terugkeren. Hierna ondernam hij nog enkele tochten naar Nepal en Tibet. Filchner overleed in 1957 in Zurich.

Roald Dahl - Roald Dahl (1916-1990) werd geboren op 13 september 1916 in Wales. Hij was een zoon van Noorse immigranten en woonde over de hele wereld. In zijn kinderboeken creëerde hij vele beroemde personages die kinderen over de hele wereld in hun greep hielden. Zo kwamen Sjakie uit de chocoladefabriek, Willy Wonka, Matilda en de Grote Vriendelijk Reus van zijn hand. De schrijfstijl van Roald Dahl is bijzonder, zijn kinderboeken waren vaak grappig, vreemd, onvoorspelbaar, griezelig en af en toe een beetje sadistisch. Een aantal boeken van hem zijn verfilmd. De meest succesvolle verfilming was Sjakie en de Chocoladefabriek uit 2005, met Johny Depp als Willy Wonka. Daarnaast schreef Roald Dahl boeken voor volwassenen, zoals Ooit en te nimmer en Oom Oswald. Deze verhalen waren vaak kort en hadden een verrassende wending aan het eind. De boeken van Roald Dahl wonnen prijzen in vele landen. In Nederland werd Roald Dahl bijvoorbeeld bekroond door de Griffeljury en de Kinderjury. Hij overleed op 23 november 1990 in Oxford.

13 September 1916 | Jack Peirs

My dear Family,

Thanks for letters & cards from Llandudno & some scotch shortbread & letters from Invergordon. There is no news. The weather is wet & there is nothing doing, as we are still in billets. I have just got to ride over to the Brigade Office about something or other & am already late so au revoir.

Jack.

13. 9. 1916.

Internationale Chocolade Dag

Er zijn 2 “chocolade-dagen” die wereldwijd op de agenda staan, namelijk 7 juli en 13 september. Als ik het goed begrepen heb is dit het verschil: op 7 juli 1550 werd chocolade voor het eerst in Europa geïntroduceerd en 13 september is de geboortedag van Milton S. Hershey. Hij was een Amerikaanse banketbakker en filantroop maar bovenal was hij de oprichter van de Hershey Chocolate Company. Dat is de reden dat de Amerikaanse Nationale Banketbakkers Association 13 september tot dé Internationale Chocolade Dag hebben uitgeroepen.

De Amerikanen vieren logischerwijs dan ook vandaag Chocoladedag maar als we naar Europa kijken zou 7 juli eigenlijk “onze” Chocolade Dag moeten zijn. Eerlijk gezegd boeit het me niet, laten we het gewoon twee keer vieren.

Letter from Captain Alexander Wallace to his fiancee Ethel, 13 September 1916.

Wallace was serving with the British South Africa Police during World War One (1914-1918) when he wrote this letter, which includes a description of bush fighting near the Ruhudje River in German East Africa (Tanzania):

'In the afternoon while we were marching along the road the Germans opened on us with maxims at long range. Our "cow" guns as they are called - because they are pulled by cattle - came up in fine style and after about 40 shells shifted the Germans…I went out afterwards and brought in two wounded German askaris. We found that the Germans had fallen back on a fortified position two miles further on…We attacked at 8am and a battle has been going on all day and the maxims going hard. So far we have had one native killed and two wounded and I am waiting for five more to come in…The Germans have got no guns but seem to be well off for maxims.

The next day we could hear our men letting off rifle grenades in the German position and as there was no reply we knew that they had cleared out…We found that they had only moved on about a mile so there was another all day fight. The country here is so mountainous that it is very easy for the Germans to leave a small rearguard to hold us up…The scenery is magnificent. Huge tree ferns all along the valleys and the hills covered with thick bush and bracken which you can't get through without cutting down'.


One of 142 letters, 1913-1918, written by Dr A F Wallace.

„Tagebuch Willy Spatz“ 1914-1919 - Tagebucheintrag vom 13. September 1916

Willy Spatz (1861-1931) war Professor an der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.

Mittwoch, den 13. September.

[Artikel „Der amtliche Tagesbericht.“]

Die Vorgänge in der Dobrutscha lenken unsre ganze Aufmerksamkeit auf sich und ziehen sie etwas von den blutigen Kämpfen an der Somme ab. Dort sollen laut Zeitungsbericht 25 neue gegnerische Divisionen eingesetzt werden; wir lassen uns aber nicht unnötig schrecken und halten diese Nachricht für einen „Bluff“. – Aus der Fülle des über Rumänien Berichteten sei auch heute wieder einiges in Nachfolgendem herausgezogen. Es heißt da: „In den Tagen, in denen Rumänien gegen Ungarn marschierte u. der Vierverband wohl schon heimlich frohlockte, konnte in aller Stille der Aufmarsch der deutschen u. bulgarischen Truppen erfolgen. Diplomatisch u. militärisch war südlich der Donau alles

[Artikel „Schandtaten der rumänischen Armee.“]

in bester Ordnung, und als die rechte Stunde gekommen war, flog den Rumänen die Kriegserklärung in’s Gesicht. Kurz darauf, Schlag auf Schlag, fegten die Bulgaren im engen Bund mit deutschen Truppen die ehemals geraubte Dobrutscha rein und fingen über 20000 „Hühnerdiebe in der Falle von Tutrakan. Heute redet man an der Seine u. Themse den Rumänen schon in’s schlechte Gewissen, daß sie in Verblendung den Bulgaren den Arm zum Schlag freigelassen hätten. Jetzt gilt es so kurz nach der Kriegserklärung schon, die Pferde vor den verfahrenen Karren spannen. Der bulgarische Gegenschlag hat seine Wirkung getan. Das ist nicht nur für Rumänien eine fatale Sache. Die Tragweite des bulg. Gegenstosses wird erst deutlich, wenn man nach Saloniki hinblickt. Der verfahrene rumänische Karren zieht den Feldherrwagen Sarrails hinter sich her.

Rumänien hat sich auf die Offensive Sarrails verlassen, und in Saloniki hat man erwartungsvoll der Wundertaten geharrt, die die Rumänen im ersten Ansturm vollbringen sollten. Die gegenseitige Enttäuschung wirkt lähmend. Es zeigt sich jetzt, daß, wie schon so oft, die Hoffnung auf unsere vermeintlich geminderte Schlagkraft dem Vierverband einen bösen Streich gespielt hat. Vielleicht war es dem Vierverband gar nicht so sehr um seinen eigenen Glauben zu tun, als darum, Griechenland in den sicheren Glauben an den Sieg des Vierverbandes einzulullen. Nur wenn König Konstantin sich mit auf die schiefe Ebene fortreißen ließ, war das neue Spiel um die Zukunft am Balkan des Einsatzes wert. Der König von Griechenland hat bis jetzt widerstanden. Die Interessen seines Landes ketten ihn nicht an die Seite des Vierverbandes. Aber schließlich ist Griechenland ein Spielball in der Hand der engl.-franz. Flotte, wenn die Gewalt allein entscheidet. Wer ist der Herr am Balkan? – Das ist am Ende auch die Schicksalsfrage für Griechenland. Sich in Athen als den Herrn aufzuspielen, das allein genügt nicht. Am Balkan hat bis jetzt trotz Rumäniens Eingreifen der Vierverband das Machtwort nicht gesprochen. Das letzte Machtwort hieß Tutrakan und Silistria. Ihr Echo wird in Athen recht vernehmlich zu hören sein.“ – Dennoch werden wir uns nicht wundern, wenn in kürzester Zeit auch von Griechenland die Kriegserklärung an uns erfolgen sollte! –
Ueber den Aufenthalt des „rumänischem Ferdinand“ will ich 2 weitere Ausschnitte aus den Zeitungen folgen lassen. Einiges ist hier nicht angeführt, was als Ergänzung der Erwähnung wert ist. Man erzählte sich damals, daß die Prinzen ein starker Drang zum Studium des weiblichen Geschlechts nach Cöln getrieben habe. Von dort seien sie zerschlagen u. zerprügelt wieder zurückgekehrt, ihr Haupthaar sei an der einen Kopfhälfte ganz glatt weggeschoren worden. Seit dieser Zeit sagt man hier von Jemandem, der bei seinen Weibstudien ähnliches

[Ein Blatt wurde herausgetrennt.]
[Karikatur „Rumäniens Königin“ / Artikel „Deutsche Truppen in Siebenbürgen.“ / Artikel „Erfolge unserer Seeflugzeuge.“]
[Artikel „Russische und italienische Angriffe überall abgewiesen. / Artikel „Bulgarisch-italienisches Zusammentreffen.“]


kommen sie ohne jedes Ergebnis trotz dieser Zeitvergeudung wieder heim! Gelingt es ihnen, etwas einzukaufen so werden die berechtigten Klagen über Kriegswucher laut. Alles was dagegen gesprochen u. geschrieben wird, ist nutzlos. Auch das, was die gestrige Zeitung in dieser Frage brachte, ist in den Wind geredet. Es hieß da: „Wenn alle wollten, würde der verfahrene Karren in Bewegung kommen! Wenn alle wollten, würde das Land der Stadt mehr zur Verfügung stellen können! Wenn alle wollten, würden weniger Vorräte versteckt sein u. ein weiterer Teil entbehrlichen Verbrauches verschwinden! – Die ganze Kraft der Kriegs-Verwaltung könnt darauf verwendet werden, die Produktion zu steigern, statt daß gar so viel Kraft auf die gerechte Verteilung des Vorhandenen verwendet werden muß. Dieses: „wenn alle wollten“ ist kein moralischer Jammer, der sich damit begnügt, daß es nicht geht, weil

[Artikel „Berlin, 13. Sept. […]“ / Artikel „Erfolgreicher Fliegerangriff auf Venedig.“ / Artikel „Ueber 22000 Gefangene in Tutrakan.“]

die böse Welt nun einmal so schlecht ist. – Es können ja alle wollen. Im Heere geht es! Warum geht es in der Heimat nicht? Es gibt eine Kraft der öffentlichen

Meinung, gegen die es nicht sehr leicht ist, sein Selbstinteresse zu behaupten und sich gegen das Ganze durchzusetzen. Ein solcher entschlossener Volkswille braucht nicht nur in einer vorübergehenden Begeisterung aufzuwallen! Er kann in seiner ganzen Härte fortbestehen u. sich an seiner eigenen Kraft verstärken, wenn einer im Willen zu Pflicht zum Beispiel für den anderen wird!“ – Wozu solche Worte an elende Krämerseelen verschwenden. Der Wucher bleibt bestehen! Der Wucher, über den v. Grotthuss in der Zeitschrift „Thürmer“ sich in folgenden scharfen Worten ausließ: Der Wucher ist der Stärkste von allen, er ist der wahre Sieger in diesem Kriege und der ruhende Pol in der Erscheinungen Flucht. Mögen die Kämpfe hin u. her wogen, unsere Feldgrauen von einem Kriegsschauplatz auf den anderen geworfen werden – der Wucher wankt u. weicht nicht von seinem Platze: wie die Spinne sitzt er unentwegt in seinem Netze, dick u. rot aufgedunsen von den verspeisten Blutopfern, mit lüsterner aber ruhigen Sicherheit der weiteren Opfer gewärtig. Der Wucherer ist der Mann dieser „großen“ Zeit, denn er hat die „Forderung des Tages“ begriffen: Tue Geld in Deinen Beutel! Und nichts kann einen charaktervollen Wucherer von der Erfüllung dieser wohlverstandenen Forderung abhalten. Gegen einen „charaktervollen“ Wucherer ist alle Staats- u. Regierungsgewalt ohnmächtig: „Uns kann keiner!“ denn auch [er] spricht von sich, wie alle Majestäten, in der Mehrzahl: Seine Majestät der Wucherer. Und ist er nicht in der Wahrheit der Herrscher der Zeit?!“ –

Enveloppe 1916-09-13 van Berthe aan haar man Auguste Chanson

Deze enveloppe is op 13 september 1916 verzonden van Champagne sur Vingeanne (Côte d’Or) door Berthe Chanson aan haar man Auguste die in het Franse leger dient. Dampierre bezat geen postkantoor vandaar Champagne sur Vingeanne.

Uit die periode blijkt dat hij leider was van een groepje dat een machinegeweer bedient. Dat groepje maakte deel uit van de 2e compagnie van het 10e Regiment infanterie.

Hij heeft ook deel uitgemaakt van de 6e compagnie van dat Regiment.

Creation of the Canadian Corps: 13 Sept 1915

The Canadian Corps was created with the arrival in France of the 2nd Canadian Division. Lieutenant-General Alderson, a senior British officer and commander of the 1st Division, was appointed commander of the Canadian Corps on 13 September 1915. Canadian Arthur Currie replaced Alderson as commander of the 1st Division. The 2nd Canadian Division entered the front line on 22 September and was deployed alongside the 1st Canadian Division opposite Messines Ridge in the Ypres sector of western Belgium. The creation of the Canadian Corps meant that all Canadian troops on the Western Front would serve under one command.
