    Some terrific pictures on this site !!

    Declaration last night after 'unsatisfactory reply' to British ultimatum that Belgium must be kept neutral

    So announced the headline on the front page of The Daily Mirror on the 4th August 1914.

    Scroll to the 4th April !

    To get an idea of just what was involved in the declaration of war, it's worth going to the Gazette archives at: and looking up the issue of 7 August 1914. There's lots of minutiae about contraband, trading with the enemy, authority for billeting requisitions, etc.
