Download PDF for this date

The newspaper Le Soir reports from Amsterdam today that Dutch Airlines officials have frustrated an attempt to ship cases of revolvers to Palestine through German express companies. The German firms repeatedly delivered cases of arms to the KLM Lines for shipment of Lydda, but transportation was refused since it was suspected that the arms were intended for illegal use.
