It is unquestionable that trawlers are being
used for mine laying by night, and the time has come when the North Sea should be cleared of hostile and' neutral fishing boats, which are' a cause of great anxiety to sailors. The enemy's submarines approach under cover of German trawlers flying British and Dutch flags. INSPECTION AT ALDERSHOT.
