GERMAN "HOSPITAL" SHIP

ANGRY SCENES AT GEAV r'.SKND. A correspondent at G-ravesend wrote to a London newspaper on .November 7: — This ancient borough has no great iiking for the nation that has shown itself so contemptibly despicable in the methods it has adopted during the present war, and one cannot expect that there should be any rejoicing over the fact, that some of its'naval men lias just put their feet a-hor* here. Such, however, is the case. German navy officers and men have landed here, and Gravesenders have rejoiced at the fact I Coining up with the tide on Thursday afternoon there was seen by a few_ who happened to bo on the front at the time a, British torpedo boat bringing a harmlesslooking hospital ship to an anchorage. Shortly afterwards three naval officers and a company of about 30 men were landed at the Terrace pier, while to help them to "toe the line : ' was a company of British soldiers with fixed bayonets to receive them. It transpired that this harmless-looking Red Cross vessel wai captured at. Yarmouth by the smart litth torpedo boat that escorted her up th; river. Painted as she is exactly like ai English Red Oro's vessel, with the exception that the cross itself is on the funnel, and not on the hull, presumably no out but the very suspicious would have thought | anything of her. But evidently our Navy J are quite awake, and were running no | risks. The caps of the men bear tin; lettering in English "Naval Division." but while everything is thus carried out t" dctene as f l i jjr sibl in r\an 'uati i ot the ve el 1 un juuimed tex< il ti i f let tint it is not Jiturt up nid is i ho pit il 1 p Vt 1 a i In di ing t ai mouth 1 xicieuth on r txxuthin r she. vn thcif for ob m ltn n puipos ji (iigjgut in tie da ludK win o Gxiig mines illhouMi to r m lii the iitmo 1 cudit be t nd lie re a tit no mm. tound on loud 'it thai the t 1 ugt and cletp ( onsidci ul iint wis ld.lt r ip in _et tn g van i< trice u ll i ] r onal be lim h i i,s of thf en x na ul lie this s loiif, Htuinph bed th luittt rwj ii i i ioi id ibio il ami i ,jnd ao\d gath url M)ii mi th e\ihn ittrns ot Hi r ii t i tin ( nduct ot urb <U t)) Rx detn The \in <n n tin umli <i m t ioi C ( cinnns in br landed o\a t< in mi u ii ( m did f lie wind 1 t ttlr de n a Icr.
