THE BOCHE ARE CIRCULATING INSPIRED RUMOURS
WE WILL KEEP OUR PROMISE OF WARNING YOU WHEN THE TIME COMES FOR YOU TO ACT.
The following advice was broadcast on September 6th by a spokesman of the Interallied High Command:-
"Be careful of German provocation.
"We have learned that the Germans are circulating inspired rumours according to which the armies at present concentrated in the British coastal regions are to be used for the invasion of the Continent. Take no notice of these rumours. They are spread by the Germans in the hope of creating among you demonstrations and disorders which would serve as pretexts for heavy reprisals.
"Discipline - discretion - patience: these are the watchwords. We will keep our promise of warning you on the day when we want your active help."
