Fortgang der großen Artillerieschlacht an der Somme


Großes Hauptquartier, 7. Oktober.
Westlicher Kriegsschauplatz:
Heeresgruppe Kronprinz Rupprecht:
Fortdauer der großen Artillerieschlacht an der Somme. Sie griff auch auf die Front nördlich der Ancre über und verschärfte sich südlich der Somme besonders beiderseits von Vermandovillers. Unser Sperrfeuer hat zwischen der Ancre und Somme feindliche Angriffe fast durchweg unterbunden und einen zwischen Lesboeufs und Bouchavesnes gegen Truppen der Generale v. Böhn und v. Garnier gerichteten Stoß im ersten Ansatz erledigt. Es kam nur zu kurzem Nahkampf südwestlich von Sailly mit schwachen bis zu unserer Linie vorgedrungenen Abteilungen. Ein aus der Front Deniecourt-Vermaudovillers-Lihons gegen den Abschnitt des Generals v. Kathen antretender französischer Angriff führte bei Vermandovillers zu erbitterten Nahkämpfen. Sie sind zugunsten unserer tapferen schlesischen Regimenter entschieden, an deren zähen Widerstande schon während des ganzen Juli in derselben Gegend alle Anstrengungen der Franzosen gescheitert waren. Im übrigen brachen die feindlichen Angriffswellen auch hier im Feuer zusammen.
Östlicher Kriegsschauplatz:
Front des Generalfeldmarschalls Prinzen Leopold von Bayern:
Die Zahl der am 5. Oktober bei Batkow (am Sereth) gefangengenommenen Russen ist auf über 300 gestiegen. Die gestern morgen beiderseits der Zlota Lipa fortgesetzten russischen Angriffe wurden wiederum blutig abgeschlagen. Eine kleine Vorstellung südlich von Mieczyszczow wurde aufgegeben. Südöstlich von Brzezany wurde eine am 30. September vom Gegner besetzte Höhe im Sturm wiedergewonnen.
Kriegsschauplatz in Siebenbürgen:
Auf der ganzen Ostfront machten die verbündeten Truppen Fortschritte, sie drängten dem durch den Geisterwald zurückgehenden Feind scharf nach; Nachhuten wurden geworfen. Bei Abwehr rumänischer Angriffe beiderseits des Roten Turm-Passes wurden 2 Offiziere, 135 Mann gefangengenommen. Südlich von Hötzing (Hatszeg) wurde den Rumänen der Grenzberg Siglen entrissen. Bei Orsowa ist wieder Gelände gewonnen.
Balkan-Kriegsschauplatz:
Heeresgruppe des Generalfeldmarschalls v. Mackensen:
An mehreren Stellen zwischen Donau und Schwarzem Meer griff der Feind an. Er wurde abgewiesen.
Mazedonische Front:
Außer kleineren vergeblichen Vorstößen brach ein starker feindlicher Angriff westlich der Bahn Monastir-Florina vor den bulgarischen Stellungen zusammen. Dedeagatsch wurde von See her ohne wesentliches Ergebnis beschossen.

Der Erste Generalquartiermeister.
Ludendorff.1)


Erfolgreiche Angriffe deutscher Seeflugzeuge am Schwarzen Meer
Berlin, 7. Oktober.
Deutsche Seeflugzeuge haben am 5. Oktober größere russische, stark bewaffnete Transportdampfer im Schwarzen Meer östlich Tuzla angegriffen und Treffer an Deck der Dampfer erzielt. Andere deutsche Seeflugzeuge warfen erfolgreich Bomben auf feindliche Munitionskolonnen und Kavallerie in der nördlichen Dobrudscha.


Gesteigerter Feuerkampf zwischen Langemarck und Zonnebeke

Berlin, 7. Oktober. (Amtlich.)
In Flandern am Abend sich steigernder Feuerkampf zwischen Langemarck und Zonnebeke. An den übrigen Fronten nichts Wesentliches. 1)

1914 : Antwerp under siege

On October 7, 1914, advancing German forces bombard the Belgian city of Antwerp, as Belgian troops and their British allies struggle to resist the onslaught.


After the mighty fortress city of Liege fell to the Germans in the opening weeks of World War I, King Albert I ordered the Belgian army’s remaining 65,000 troops in the region to retreat to the city of Antwerp, protected by a ring of 48 inner and outer forts and some 80,000 garrison troops. From Antwerp, Belgian forces conducted sorties in August and September 1914 designed to distract the German 1st Army, led by General Alexander von Kluck, from its attacks against the British and French over the French frontier. After von Kluck was forced to send four divisions to repel an attack from Antwerp on September 9, German Chief of Staff Helmuth von Moltke decided to send his men against Antwerp with the goal of capturing the city.


On September 28, five German divisions began bombing the outer ring of forts at Antwerp’s southeastern corner. Heavy artillery such as the famous Big Bertha—a 420-mm siege howitzer gun—made an immediate impact, arousing the concern of the British War Office, which determined to redeploy troops originally intended for the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) in France to Antwerp. After the Germans succeeded in penetrating two of the city’s forts on October 2, the British sent Winston Churchill, first lord of the Admiralty, to personally assess the situation. Churchill telegraphed his observations to Minister of War Lord H.H. Kitchener on October 4, stating that the Belgian troops were "weary and disheartened" and that the city’s ground was so waterlogged that it was impossible for the Belgians to dig trenches for its protection.


By October 5, some 8,000 troops of the British Royal Naval Division had arrived in Antwerp, transported from the port city of Ostend in London city buses commandeered for the war effort. The following day, a larger British force of 22,000 reached Ostend; after the French decided not to send any troops, however, the British command hesitated in sending their own force ahead. They hesitated too long: Though the British soldiers who did reach Antwerp were greeted with jubilant cries of "Vive les Anglais!" they were unable to withstand the German onslaught, which began with a fierce bombardment on the evening of October 7.


That same day, the Belgian government—relocated to Antwerp from Brussels after that city’s fall—moved again, this time to Ostend. On October 8, Antwerp was evacuated; its military governor, General Victor Deguise, formally surrendered to the Germans on October 10. German forces would occupy Antwerp for the duration of the war; it was finally liberated in late 1918.

Ypres

(...) Rawlinson reached Ypres on 14 October. Seven days earlier, on 7 October, German cavalry had briefly passed through Ypres. The Germans levied 70,000 francs for the town’s good behaviour. The Germans destroyed the telegraph system, but Rawlinson's 7th Signal Company was able to repair one line the Germans had missed. The Germans were not to enter the town again. (...)

"HIDDEN HISTORIES" - The truths & the tragedies behind the headstones

During our study of R.N.D. casualties, the men buried at Eksaarde drew scrutiny for several reasons, but mainly for the dates of death given for two men, LS Haggis & AB Whitehead. Both were in the Collingwood Battalion, R.N.D., & both are recorded as died 7/10/14. It is a matter of historical fact that the Collingwood Battn. were in the trenches at Antwerp (over 35 miles away) on the 7th of October 1914 & we wondered why these two chaps were buried so far from their supposed place of death. It was only when a private diary was published in Len Sellers' "R.N.D." magazine, that we were able deduce the true date & cause of their deaths:-

R.N.D. Royal Naval Division, Antwerp, Gallipoli & Western Front 1914-1918, published by Len Sellers, Issue 20, March 2002, pages 1935-1936:-

Antwerp & Doberitz. The Diary of a POW. W. Reid. T2/119. Able Seaman, RNVR, Hawke Bn.

The 9th of October found us marching through Belgian towns & villages making for Holland, for it was there we learned later that 60,000 Germans were pursuing us. While on this march we again got astray from our Hawke Company & joined up with the Collingwood Battn. We later all fell in with a party of Marines & it was at a small village that the officer in charge changed his mind & decided to fall in with them making for Ostend.

All the roads we traversed were crowded with refugees, the young & old making for Holland. When we arrived at St. Nicholas a distance of 35 miles from Antwerp, we were told the Germans were doing a forced march to cut off our retreat in the direction of Ostend. Nevertheless our officers decided to risk it & we started another long march, all this time we had had nothing to eat & were starving, so no one would be able to imagine our resistance should we be attacked. After marching for about four hours we boarded a train already half full of refugees & were packed on top of trucks, sitting on the buffers, anywhere we could get. All went well till about 9 o'clock when most of us has fallen asleep. We were awakened by sounds of rifle fire & quickly jumping down took cover under wagons or anything which afforded cover & commenced firing. The firing lasted for about ten minutes, then the cry went up we must surrender for the sake of the women & children, so we surrendered.

After we had surrendered the Germans started firing on us again so we retaliated & the German Colonel who had the misfortune to be in the open, sitting on his horse, was shot down by a Marine lying next to me on the railway side. After the firing has ceased we again were told to ground our arms & ammunition & were all marched into a street. All this time the screams of the women & children were terrible, for two women & one baby had been shot. One shot passed through the baby & its mother. If it had not been for the women & children it could have been all up with us for there were 10,000 Germans to 900 of us. Nevertheless we accounted for over 100 & their Colonel, whilst the firing lasted.

After searching & counting us, we were marched to a church at a place called Eairs. Whilst on the march six men had the misfortune to be shot through one trying to escape. Two of the dead men belonging to the Tyneside Division. One of them was J.Whitehead, the other C.Redmond. We arrived at the church about 4am Saturday 10th October & were served with a piece of bread about one & a half inches square, this being all they could spare, as they had nothing for themselves. Our stay at this church was very strange, as no one seemed to be able to sleep. We were kept there for two days, Saturday & Sunday 11th October, with very little to eat.

The next day Monday the 12th October we were marched to Termonde. This was a town of nothing but ruined streets & all the way a distance of 24 miles we had to carry the German Guards' packs for them. On our march, during halts, the German Guards went into the fields & threw some swedes to us, which were eaten ravenously & were even carried by us till we reached Doberitz. When we arrived at Termonde we were supplied with a cup of soup, this being the first feed we had had from Sunday dinnertime. After finishing this meal we were packed into goods wagons, about 40 in each one, for a two & a half-day journey, receiving only two meals on route.

Eugene de Salignac - Brooklyn Bridge, showing painters on suspenders, October 7, 1914

‘From 1906 to 1934, Eugene de Salignac shot over twenty thousand 8-by-10-inch glass-plate negatives of New York City. As solephotographer at the Department of Bridges/Plant and Structures duringthat period of dizzying growth, he masterfully documented the creationof the city’s modern infrastructure-bridges, major municipal buildings,roads, and subways.

For years these remarkably lyrical photographs have been used in booksand films, but never credited to de Salignac. The monograph New YorkRises (copublished by Aperture and the New York City Department ofRecords/Municipal Archives, 2007) sets the record straight, andpresents them for the first time as an aesthetically coherent oeuvre bya photographer with a unique vision. As meticulous in record keeping ashe was creative in his photography, de Salignac left five handwrittenlogs that identify each negative by place and date. Many of his vintageprints survive in the city’s municipal archives, most of them still inhis original presentation albums.

His work is a testament to the emergence of the modern city, itsarchitecture and infrastructure, and those who built it. Includedwithin this scope, of course, are New York City’s bridges, the mostfamous of which opened to great fanfare in 1883. The Brooklyn Bridgewould be a continual source of inspiration to de Salignac and aconstant presence in his work. On September 22, 1914, he photographed agroup of painters at work on its lower trusses. He must have had aspark of inspiration that day; two weeks later he returned and posedthe men on the web of wires like notes on a musical scale, the resultof which can be seen in this photograph. The image was obviouslyplanned, as evidenced by the relaxed nature of these fearless men whoappear without their equipment and are joined, uncustomarily, by theirsupervisor. No vintage print of this iconic photo-the most famous of deSalignac’s images-is known to exist.”

Schitterende foto... http://www.rachelhulin.com/blog/2008/09/eugene-de-salignac-october-7-1914.html

Diary of Alvin York

God would never be cruel enough to create a cyclone as terrible as that Argonne battle. Only man would ever think of doing an awful thing like that. It looked like "the abomination of desolation" must look like. And all through the long night those big guns flashed and growled just like the lightning and the thunder when it storms in the mountains at home.
And, oh my, we had to pass the wounded. And some of them were on stretchers going back to the dressing stations, and some of them were lying around, moaning and twitching. And the dead were all along the road. And it was wet and cold. And it all made me think of the Bible and the story of the Anti-Christ and Armageddon.
And I'm telling you the little log cabin in Wolf Valley in old Tennessee seemed a long long way off.
- Account of 7 October 1918

World War One Letters Home - October 1915

Vosges

October 7th 1915
My Dear Mother

No parcels yet, they take an awful time. Letters going home been very slow too …

I’m delighted to hear about Campden, just the very person he wanted, R.C. & money, £5000 a yr. to start is alright & presumably more some day, he will be able to live at Exton. They ought to be pleased. I never heard of the Eyres, Argentine people I suppose & made money out there. I daresay very nice. Suppose they will soon marry. They no doubt please to marry their daughter to a future Earl …

Hope C. gets his job at War Office & is safe, as Flanders now is a very uncertain spot, there must of course be a lot more of what there just has been. I see poor ?????? C Stuart has been killed, also a de Trafford, don’t know which …

Ernest should pass his medical exam all right; don’t know about the other, but he has 2 more years to try. If he passes does he go soon to Woolwich…

These nights are pitch dark & it is awfully hard getting along with no lights, cars get in ditch or collide etc. so far I’ve been very lucky. They tell one that no other ambulances go along the sort of roads we do without lights, but of course one can’t have them …

Balkans seem in a mess, can’t make out what side they are all going on, Bulgaria of course, but others still seem uncertain. Greece seems to be too at present.

Yes income tax of 3/6 awful. One wonders what will be end of it all …
Best love
Yr affect son

October 1915 — The Central Powers Return in Force to Serbia

... The German plan called for German and Austro-Hungarian forces to attack from the north and Bulgarian forces to invade Serbia from the east. Serbia had 11 weak divisions in the field against ten German divisions, six Bulgarian divisions, and seven Austro-Hungarian divisions (Keegan, 1995). Also, German artillery outnumbered Serbian artillery by a 4:1 margin (Keegan, 1995). The German and Austro-Hungarian forces began bombarding the Serbian forces on 5 October 1915 and bridged the Sava and Danube rivers on 7 October (Keegan, 1995). Belgrade fell on 9 October, and Bulgaria invaded from the east on 11 October 1915...

Gallipoli - Lemnos Island

Aboard 'SS Elkahera' and onto Lemnos Island (Rest & Relaxation)

7th October 1915 - On board SS "Elkahera" heading for Lemnos. Great beano all morning. Great after scrapping. Quite a diversion from slaughtering. Arrived at Mudros West and proceeded to our Rest Camp. Had a most amusing happening on the way. All of us (about 250) had to wade across a stream about ½ a mile wide. Take off all clothing and prepare for immersion. Great, saw a ("nurse") some species of an unforgotten race I once knew. Arrived here ok and attended a concert at a YMCA. Didn't half enjoy it either.
