1915 Zeppelin L-4 crashes into North Sea

After encountering a severe snowstorm on the evening of February 17, 1915, the German zeppelin L-4 crash-lands in the North Sea near the Danish coastal town of Varde.

The zeppelin, a motor-driven rigid airship, was developed by German inventor Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin in 1900. Although a French inventor had built a power-driven airship several decades before, Zeppelin’s rigid dirigible, with its steel framework, was by far the largest airship ever constructed.

The L-4’s captain, Count Platen-Hallermund, and a crew of 14 men had completed a routine scouting mission off the Norwegian coast in search of Allied merchant vessels and were returning to their base in Hamburg, Germany, when the snowstorm flared up, bombarding the airship with gale-force winds.

Unable to control the zeppelin in the face of such strong winds, the crew steered toward the Danish coast for an emergency landing, but was unable to reach the shore before crashing into the North Sea. The Danish coast guard rescued 11 members of the crew who had abandoned ship and jumped into the sea prior to the crash; they were brought to Odense as prisoners to be interrogated. Four members of the crew were believed drowned and their bodies were never recovered.

One month earlier, the L-4 had taken part in the first-ever air raid on Britain in January 1915, when it and two other zeppelins dropped bombs on the towns of Great Yarmouth and King's Lynn on the eastern coast of England. Four civilians were killed in the raid, two in each town. Zeppelins would continue to wreak destruction on Germany’s enemies throughout the next several years of war--by May 1916, 550 British civilians had been killed by aerial bombs.

Commons Sitting, 17 February 1915

BANTAM BATTALIONS.


HC Deb 17 February 1915 vol 69 c1133 1133

Mr. HOGGE asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that in Glasgow and Edinburgh there are at present applications from 2,000 bantams who could be handed over to the War Office at any moment; and whether, in view of these facts, the War Office are now prepared to give their consent to the formal recruiting of such battalions?

Mr. TENNANT We are in communication with the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Scottish Command, and hope to be in a position to give a definite reply shortly.

Mr. HOGGE Will my right hon. Friend say how the enrolment of these men, who are under the height for joining any other battalion, can interfere with the recruiting of those battalions; and, if they do not interfere, why the War Office does not give authority at once to raise bantam battalions all over the country?

Mr. TENNANT The answer is that we have to consider our requirements for providing drafts for the wastage of War, and it is just possible we may use these men for that purpose rather than form them into new battalions.

Mr. WATT Is the War Office not aware of the great advantage of being served by bantams?

Mutiny in Singapore, 15-20th February, 1915

On Wednesday 17th February, the French cruiser Montcalm followed by smaller Russian and Japanese warships arrived. They immediately unloaded a large number of Marines who immediately advanced on the mutineers. A sharp battle ensued in which the mutineers came off second best. A large number of them surrendered immediately, the rest scattered into the jungle. A large number tried to escape across the Strait of Johore but were immediately rounded up by the Sultan of Johore’s army. In the meantime, the mutineers who had scattered continued to wage a sniping war on the allies.

MCB

Op zaterdag 17 februari 1917 werd de Motorclub Brabant (MCB) opgericht met uitsluitend Tilburgers in het bestuur.

Bij het twaalf-en-eenhalf-jarig bestaan in 1929 werd hierover vermeld:
‘Het eerste jaar, werden er verschillende propagandaritten en gezelligheidsritten gehouden, doch werden er MEER KILOMETERS GEGETEN EN GEDRONKEN, DAN GEREDEN, daar de gezelligheid hoofdzaak was’.

Na de eerste wereldoorlog en na de benzineschaarste van 1918, werd vervolgens op donderdag 1 mei 1919 de Tilburgse Motor Club (TMC) opgericht, waarvan in 1929 bleek dat geen van de bestuursleden uit 1919 nog TMC-lid was of een motor had. Ze waren allemaal overgeschakeld op auto’s!

M-1917 HELMET PROCUREMENT AND TOTALS

During the fall of 1917 production was begun on the M-1917 helmets. By the end of November 1917, the first deliveries of large quantities of M-1917 helmets were being made to the United States Army. On 17 February 1918, approximately 700,000 M-1917 helmets had been produced. As United States involvement in World War I increased, the U.S. Army placed additional orders for the M-1917 helmet. By July 1918 orders for the M-1917 helmet reached 3,000,000, in August 6,000,000, and in September 7,000,000. In November 1918, when hostilities ended and American production was ordered to cease, U.S. Manufacturers had produced a total of 2,707,237 M-1917 helmets.

Letter from Sigmund Freud to Karl Abraham, February 17, 1918

Vienna IX, Berggasse 19
17 February 1918

Dear Friend,
Yesterday my son Martin came home on leave from Tagliamento in “excellent shape”. Ernst is also here, but not at all well. Thanks to a general eczema, Oli has a rather long stay in a Galician hospital.
I received a booklet from Germany a few days ago that is bound to be of special interest to you. I cannot send it to you, because I want it to be generally known here, but you will be able to get it easily. It is called “War Neuroses and Psychic Trauma. Their Mutual Relations, Presented on the Basis of Studies in Psychoanalysis and Hypnosis” by Ernst Simmel, MD at present senior physician of the L[Landsturm?] and doctor in charge in a special hospital for war neurotics.
With a preface by Dr Adolf Schnee Publisher Otto Nemnich, Leipzig—Munich 1918.

LEAGUE OF NATIONS.


HC Deb 17 February 1920 vol 125 c677 677

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when the first assembly of the League of Nations will be called; where the first sitting will be held; which nations will be invited to send representatives; and whether the sitting will be public or private?

The ADDITIONAL UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lieut.-Colonel Sir Hamar Greenwood) I fear I am not in a position to reply to the first two and last parts of the question, no decisions having as yet been taken. As regards the third part, all the States which are members of the League of Nations will be entitled to send representatives to the Assembly.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY Will the States we have recognised de facto be invited to send representatives to the first meeting of the Assembly?

Sir H. GREENWOOD If they are members of the League of Nations.

HONOR TITANIC'S SURGEON
New York Times, Tuesday 17 February 1914

A new emergency ward in St. Vincent's Hospital, equipped and furnished throughout as a memorial to Dr. Francis Norman O'Loughlin, the senior ship surgeon of the White Star Line, who perished in the disaster to the Titanic, was dedicated yesterday to the use of disabled seamen. The ward is on the ground floor, off the entrance on Eleventh Street, near Seventh Avenue. It consists of three separate rooms, one for general usage containing nine beds, one with three beds for patients in delirium, and the third with five beds to provide for an overflow or for women patients when necessary.

The committee in charge of erecting a memorial to Dr. O'Loughlin began its work shortly after the sinking of the Titanic. The memorial, as proposed originally, consisted of a laboratory to be erected on the roof of St. Vincent's, but this not complying with the requirements of the Building Bureau, it was decided to equip an emergency ward. St. Vincent's was selected for this purpose because it receives the majority of injured seamen and was the hospital at which Dr. O'Loughlin was a constant visitor in attendance on sailors. At yesterday's exercises Dr. Edward C. Titus, for many years an associate of Dr. O'Loughlin, said:

"Dr. O'Loughlin, whose memory we perpetuate, as [sic; "was"?] a ship surgeon for forty years. He was a constant visitor at this hospital, in caring for his ship's injured sailors. Not more than a month before his death he said to me, 'If I die on land, I hope that my burial will be in peace, but by all that is fitting I should be wrapped in a sack and sunk in the sea which I have traveled for forty years.'"

While the dedication ceremonies were in progress Angello Grillo, a ship rigger, was brought to the hospital suffering from internal injuries resulting from a fall from a mast derrick on a pier. There were eight sailors in the hospital yesterday.

Skookum Apple Face Doll with Papoose Feb. 17th 1914



She is faded on the front as were the other dolls I bought, so they must have been displayed in the light. The back is untouched by light. She is 7" tall and 8" around her shoulders. Black beads for eyes and so does her baby. I think she belongs in a museum or someones cherished collection. This is a relist for you watchers! And is the great news!!!

She is an original Mary McAboy Skookum. Mary McAboy from Missoulla, MT began making these dolls in 1913 from her memory of tribal medicine practices. She applied for a patent of an Indian Brave and a Squaw with Papoose and was granted the patent on Feb 17th 1914. In 1919 she received the patent for "Skookum" which is Siwash for "bully good". So from 1919 on,with the mass production of her dolls,they were Skookum Dolls.

T is a faded label on the bottom of this doll Patented Feb 17th 1914. So she is an early doll.Good luck bidding!

Is helaas al verkocht... http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/skookum-apple-face-doll-with-papoose-feb-17th
