2nd August

Dr. Charles H. Mayo predicts a lower death rate in this war compared to previous conflicts due to advances in medicine.

Skirmish at Joncherey occurs as German cavalry illegally enters French territory and engage a French patrol. Jules-André Peugeot becomes the first French soldier to die in WWI, killed by a sabre of a German cavalryman.

In St. Petersburg, thousands gather at the Winter Palace Square, holding flags, banners, icons and portraits of Tsar Nicholas II.

Germany and the Ottoman Empire ratify a secret alliance treaty.

August 2

German troops occupy Luxembourg.

Germany delivers an ultimatum to Belgium, demanding that the German army be allowed to move through Belgian territory. Belgium refuses.

The French government appropriates fifty aircraft being constructed for Turkey.

The British government seizes two battleships also being built under a Turkish contract. Britain tells France that if German ships attack French shipping in the North Sea that the Royal Navy will provide assistance.

Junkers had build the first all metal aircraft in 1915 (Junkers J1). The first military all metal plane was the Junkers D1 which then lead to the CL1.

August 3 , With the outbreak of war in Europe imminent, the Australian Government offered to place vessels of the Royal Australian Navy under control of the British Admiralty and to raise a force of 20,000 troops.

Australia missed the memo on the British declaration of war. http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...rchives-reveal

Agreed....try to stay on topic.

Only one reported post thus far but others will probably follow if thread derailments continue.

3rd August

10,000 men in Boston are laid off as shipments to Russia and Austria have stopped.

Belgium refuses the German ultimatum, which demanded free passage of German troops through the country. King Albert of Belgium in response to Kaiser Wilhelm: “What does he take me for?” and orders bridges over the Meuse to be destroyed and commands Liége fortresses “to hold to the end…”

German General Staff expects Belgium to offer no resistance other than a small show of force.

August 3

British mobilization order is given.

Germany declares war on France. German troops march into Belgium.

In Munich, Austrian citizen Adolf Hitler petitions King Ludwig III of Bavaria to be allowed to join the Bavarian army. The petition is granted the next day.

Italy declares itself neutral, saying that Austria's declaration of war against Serbia is not part of the Triple-Alliance charter.

King Karol of Rumania wishes to join Germany and Austria-Hungary, but his elected government votes to declare neutrality.

Turkey declares armed neutrality.

Britain issues an ultimatum to Germany to respect Belgian neutrality. When this is announced at a cabinet meeting in Berlin Admiral Tirpitz says "All is then lost!"

Agreed and fixed! On 3 August 1914, Germany declared war on France and broke the treaty by invading Belgium. As Foreign Secretary, Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Fallodon, stood at a window in the Foreign Office, watching the lamps being lit as dusk approached, he famously remarked: "The lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our time". The British Cabinet would vote almost unanimously to declare war the next day... Those lamps have never been relit!

Once the memo got through on 4 August Australia pledged a force of 20,000, to be placed at Britain's disposal, but by the end of the war over 400,000 Australians were in uniform.

Movement of German steamers in Australian harbours are noted and the lead up to the first shots fired by British Empire troops begins. http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/90522816?
