NotesOn 7 May 1915 the American passenger ship the "Lusitania", which also happened to be carrying ammunition, was sunk by a German submarine. The event was used for propaganda purposes in Britain. Haselden's notes [in pencil, on front] read: This is meant to convey that Germany is an easy first over all the world's cut-throats.
