The front page has a nice banner headline: "GERMAN CREWS SINK MOST OF GREAT SCAPA FLOW FLEET; SHIPS, WITH SEACOCKS OPEN, GO DOWN UNDER GERMAN FLAG" with subheads that include: "Interned Fleet Scuttled" "All Big Warships but One and Many Smaller Craft Go Down" and more. (see) First report coverage on the scuttling of the German Fleet by Rear Admiral Ludwig von Reuter after the end of World War I.
Other news of the day. Complete 1st section only with all 24 pages, light toning at the margins, irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
