KB in Iowa BS: Christmas Truce (1914) (806* d) RE: BS: Christmas Truce (1914) 03 Jan 14

KB, this was posted just last Sunday.
It is not reasonable for you to come in at the end of 12 weeks of debate and demand a rehash!
If you are not prepared to look yourself, do not expect me to do it for you!
You could start by reading the preview in the link.

"Invasion was recognised as a serious threat in 1914, and many regiments were deployed to meet it."

I am not asking for a rehash. I have read all the posts and many of the links. You mention reading the preview in the link but do not say which link. You refer to last Sunday but there were no actual links posted on that day. edit - I see now that you are referring to a link in a different thread. Sorry, but I do not feel obligated to go through another thread to get an answer for a question in this one.

You asked about 3 points and asked for rebuttals. I picked point one and asked for clarification and for your personal opinion on that point.

On pages 124-125 of the link you provided in the other thread (which I did go ahead and open) I find the following:
"On 14 September, Maurice Hankey, Secretary to the CID, argued that confidential instructions for the population should be prepared in the event of a raid, even if invasion was improbable." - emphasis mine -
