100 YEARS AGO: Sussex Express 18 June 1915. Cereal Crops That May be Bombed. As the Board of Agriculture have declined to take any action in the matter, the central Chamber of Agriculture are issuing a notice drawing attention to the danger of cereal crops being set on fire by incendiary bombs.

The necessity will be emphasized from the national perspective, as well as from the farmer’s personal point of view, of taking precautions to prevent the spread of fires.

The Central Chamber is also endeavouring to induce the Government to aid the insurance of home-grown crops against destruction by the enemy.

The London Chamber of Commerce in this connection expressing the views of most property owners, desire some authoritative declaration from the Government as to the State’s obligation in respect of damage caused generally by hostile aircraft.
