    What an opening line of a new diary!

    A great potted history of the first few days of the war.

    I read an interesting but ominous article, about the car that Archduke Franz Ferdinand was being driven in when he was assassinated.
    Apparently the car bore the number plate: A111 118. The date of Armistice Day: 11/11/18.

    That's spooky!

    It's fascinating to read about these events in the words of people who heard them as breaking news at the time, isn't it? Quite a different perspective from all the rest of us who have learned about them from history books.
