The Syrtis Star: "All the News That Fits"
Miss Clarisa Turnbridge, the Mad Bomber of Syrtis Major, escaped early
this morning just prior to being loaded aboard the etherliner Constance
for shipment to Earth. Details of the escape have not been released
by authorities, but it does appear that a number of individuals were involved,
including at least one police official.
Authorities have requested the aid of all citizens in apprehending Miss
Turnbridge, but cautioned that she is to be considered armed and dangerous.
Information about her whereabouts should be forwarded to the police - private
citizens are warned not to confront her.
In a double surprise, authorities requested the aid of well-known detective
Horace Manning in solving the case, but he has turned them down.
When asked by this reporter the reason for his refusal, Manning said "No
woman who can make the kind of scones that Miss Turnbridge is capable of
can be a criminal. She is innocent, I tell you. Now, where
would you like to go for luncheon?"
War in the Coprates?
Tossia: Unconfirmed reports from Nectar indicate that troops loyal
to the Prince of Copratia have invaded Belgian territory in an effort to
end colonial rule. Units of the Tossian army, as well as European
soldiers of unknown origins, have been reported to be aiding the Prince's
troops. However, the Tossian government issued an official statement
denying that its forces are involved.
The Belgian embassy to the Crown Colony went on record yesterday with
a categorical denial that any invasion of its territory had taken place.
"There is the usual level of bandit activity, of course," said Ambassador
Winkelman, "but nothing our colonial police can't handle on a routine basis."
Belgian policies in the Coprates have been widely criticized in recent
years, most notably in the wake of the denial of travel permits requested
by the board of the Martian Missionary Society. The Society sought
to investigate rumors of slavery in the Coprates, but have been unable
to proceed in the face of official opposition by Belgian authorities.
Collision over Avenel
Avenel: The Royal Naval Attaché's Office reports that two
warships of Her Majesty's fleet were damaged in an aerial collision yesterday.
The aerial ironclads HMS Gladiator and HMS Lord Byron collided
over the King William IV Aerodrome near the Royal Arsenal at Avenel.
HMS Lord Byron, demasted in recent action against pirates in the
Aerian Hills, was under tow by the tug HMS Solphates, when she suddenly
parted her lines and drifted across the bows of HMS Gladiator.
Damage to HMS Lord Byron is extensive but limited to her bow.
Repairs shall be carried out at the newly completed Armstrong-Elswick Avenel
Dockyards. HMS Gladiator received no damage of note.
The Naval Office is happy to report that there was no loss of life, only
minor injuries suffered among both air crews. A Court of Inquiry
will be held in the next few days.
Both ships are veterans of the Gorovaangian Wars. HMS Lord
Byron served as Rear-Admiral Hydownes' flagship at the Battle of the
Nathallanian Gap. HMS Gladiator was commanded by Captain Sir
Anthony Maxton when it led Trellow's squadron in breaking the Hattian-Avenelian
battleline at the Battle of Stattash. Recently, HMS Gladiator
single-handidly defeated two Oenotrian Hullcutters in close action
while supporting Lieutenant General Wood's First Column.
British Reinforcements To Be Sent To Mars
London: In an announcement made earlier today,
the Prime Minister's office confirmed that additional troops from both
the British and Indian Armies will be sent to Mars. This announcement follows
several weeks of critical discussions in both houses of Parliament as to
the direction of the Oenotrian War in general and the conduct of the Martian
Colonial Troops in particular:
"It has become plainly and painfully obvious," said
Sir Roland Palliser, MP for Barchester, "that the Martian soldiers are
simply not up to the rigors of modern warfare." He went on to say that
the increased British commitment to the Oenotrian War should make it plain
to all that Britain will do all that is necessary to secure victory.
At least two British units, the Lancashire Fusiliers and the King's
Own Yorkshire Light Infantry have already been placed on alert. "We're
ready to go and do our part", said Lt. Colonel Sir Peter Barker, commanding
officer of the KOYLI. He added that the officers and men of his battalion
have full faith and confidence in the final victory of British arms. Other
units mentioned as possible re-inforcements include the Buffs, the Scottish
Rifles, and the Gordon Highlanders. The 1st Bombay Grenadiers of the Indian
Army have also received orders to prepare for the long journey. According
to reports they are to be joined by a battalion of Gurkhas and the 1st
Sikhs of Punjab Frontier Force fame.
Sir Roland Palliser said, "Now, by thunder, those blasted Oenotrians
will feel the full wrath of the British Empire!"
Hawthorne Seen in Karkarham
Karkarham: Captain Niles Hawthorne, captain of the Aurora, was seen
in Karkarham. He and his crew were in the city only briefly, and
left late last week for parts unknown. German authorities are still
looking for Hawthorne's companions, Major Esterhazy-Mueller and the Duke
of Bernay - a substantial reword is still on offer to anyone who can put
the pair in contact with the German embassy.
