Thrilling Story of Terrific Battle Between Teutonic Aviators
and Entente Warships Is Related by Brother of Greek
King City Terrorized as Bombs From Airships Kill and
Wound Many Soldiers.
Athens, Jan. 5 Prince Andrew, of
Greece, brother of King Constantino,
in an interview today with ,the cor
respondent of The - Associated Press,
described the aeria,bombardment, of
the allies' camp at Zeltpenlik, on the
outskirts of Saloniki, on Dec. 30.
"The bombardment and the reply
of the fleets anchored in the roads at
Saloniki," said the Prince, "was 'one
pof the most extraordinary sights imag
inable. I was riding back from the
morning's work with my regiment
about 10:30 when I was startled by a
deafening explosion some 200 yards
away. Areat cloud of black smoke
arose followed shortly.by three more
explosions at regular intervals. Then
came the familiar, rocket-like sound
of a shell passing through the air,
evidently fired by one of -the warships
In the harbor. .- .
"Naturally, my first thought was
that for some reason the fleet was
bombarding -Baloniki. Therefore, I
rode straight to the nearest British
post, which happened, to be a hospital
not far from the Greek-camp. 'Why
are you bombarding the city?" I
asked the officers. Then for the first
time t looked" up and saw three ma
chines fully 3,000 feet high flying in
line from the northeast and turning
just over the harbor toward the north
west in . which direction ' they finally
disappeared. ,
"The bombs dropped with the great
est precision one after another killing
and -wounding, a number of the allies'

Explosion Coming at Luncheon' Time--Traps Scores In
, Dining - Salons Big Vessel Sinks Within Few-Minutes'
After .Attack.
, London, Jan. 5 The! survivors 'of
the British ' steamship Persia, which
was , torpedoed in the . Mediterranean
last Thursday, reached i Alexandria.
Egypt, ' according" to the account -sent
by Renter's correspondent'; at 'that
point, all bearing traces of shock and
hardship.' - Mostv of them had badly
bruised and bandaged . limbs. ' One
woman is in a hospital with a broken
leg. . V
, The tragedy was . enacted so unex
pectedly that the 'survivors say they
hardly realised what happened, con
sequently they had little tp tell. The
passengers were sitting " quietly. - at
luncheon, everyone in good ' humor
and an atmosphere of gaiety prevail
ing. Five minutes later those who es
caped were in boats or clinging to
wreckage, and the luxurious liner was
completely gone. I . ,-
Luuobeon had just started when
there came a terrific explosion. The
liner trembled a moment' later listed
sharply to port. Only those wrio left
their' seats instantly and those who
had not yet come down to! the dinlrfg
saloon had any . chance to escape.
Many seemed paralyzed with fear and
sat as if glued to their, seats. Their
indecision was fatal as the J water
poured in and the list increased. Some
of those who gained the deck lost
their footing, and slipped immediately
into the sea while others-were swept
away by waves. .:
" It was -possible-J;o launch boats only
on one side of ,.the- ship and only the
prompt action by . "officers and crewj
enabled them to launch the boats. All
the passengers praise the coolness and
quickness of the ' crew. There were
no signs Of panic. Every one made
the most of the few, remaining mo
ments. -' ..
One young woman described her
experiences as follows:
"I . was just sitting down at table
when the explosion occurred.' I ran
at once to my -cabin for a life pre
server and twice was thrown down in
the passage. by the rocking-of the ship.
I got to njy cabin, snatched a life
belt Sand rushed to the-Seek. I had
the utmost difficulty in keeping 'my
footing and was again thrown flown.
As I reached the- deck the liner
J'urched' heavily and I fell. .Although
badly shaken and bruised . I quickly
managed to adjust the lifebelt and
jumped into the sea where I was res
cued 15 minutes later."
Two men going to Egypt rushed to
the bridge and dived . into tne water
from which they were saved. Moth

Meanwhile, the firing of the fleet grew
thunderous. It was impossible to hear
yourself think. In a short time it be
came evident that the fire from the
fleetwas more dangerous) than the
Bombs of the aeroplanes as some of
the shells, aimed wild, -whistled di
rectly over the- tOWn, one narrowly
missing Major Metxas and a troop of
Greek cavalry returning from exercise.
Shells began to drop with frequency
over the city, one even piercing two
floors of a. tram station and burying
itself in the ground cellar. The pop
ulace, not understanding what it was
all about, were greatly excited. '
"Toward noon a fourth aeroplane
arrived following exactly the same
course as the others, though flying
lower. The black maltese crosses were
plainly visible on its wmgs. My wife
and I watched its flight, from the bal
cony of our house. -;
"Hiding home along King George
street towards tea time I was as
tounded to see French soldiers and a
dense crowd surrounding the German
consulate. Further along the street
other consulates presented the same
sight. The consuls were hustling
through the crowds, talking to the
iTencn commander. General Sarrail,
cross-examined, then put aboard the
battleship . Patrie 'to the accompani
ment throughout of the stares and
comments of curious crowds.
"Despite appearances," the Prince
said, "Saloniki is still Greek."

nd - never returnfed. Only two chil
dren were saved. The chief officer
is said to , havo been Mn his cabin
at the time of the explosion. He
rushed to the bridge -kni did all that
was humanly possible. He went down
with the ship but. was rescued fro ran
me water, ne xnmxs mat tne captain
sank with the ship although some pas
sengers strid they saw thee aptain
swimming. - ,
Many of the passengers of the Per
sia believe that in addition to the
boats in which they were ' saved two
other lifeboats got clear of the sink
ing steamer according to a-Reuter's
despatch from Alexandria. The chief
officer of the Persia, however, thinks
that this is improbable and that if
other boatti wcreeein' aa some of
the passengers declared, they -were
empty boats which broke, loose when
the steamef turned over and-went to
the1, bottom. This view is supported
my the other surviving officer.
The, survivors lost everything they
ewned and during tho 80 hours they
spent in thexbo.ts suffered severely
from the cold. None of i(hem -had
warm clothing. There was . a Suffi
cient supply of water 'and provisions,
however as the boats were already
stocked in accordance, with marine
regulations. i
Everything possible is- being done
here for. the comfort of the survivors.
