Random Cutting - Ex-Tsar's Fate (1918)

Click to Read
In retrospect the last sentence of this cutting from July 3rd 1918 is rather prophetic as Tsar (or Czar) Nicholas and his family (including Alexis) were murdered 14 days later in Tobolsk in Siberia on the 17th. The Tsar’s brother Michael, whose whereabouts are queried in the cutting, had in fact been murdered in Perm on the 13th of June. They do say ‘the first casualty of War is truth’, or at least accuracy.
