ARMOR FOR: SOLDIERS IS SUGGESTED British Consider Proposal to Pro vide Troops with Protection Against Bullets of Enemy Next Year THREE PIECE SUIT OF I TEMPERED STEEL Plan Believed to Be Practicable in French Fighting; Shields Tried on Small Scale in Spanish American War ... . BY WIL3UR 8. FORREST. f tUnited Press Staff Correspondent.) London, Aug. 14. (By mall.) The 1916 British army may be an armored army. , The great casualty list that filters through the war office every day from the front; the convalescent wounded and battered soldiers that are always on the streets and the overflowing hos pitals are beginning to have their ef fect. Many ask. "Isn't there a way to minimize this appalling situation?" 'Somebody has answered: "Armor." And it's beginning to look like armor for the British soldiers of 1916. While the British war office la con sidering whether it shall slip back" to medieval methods of warfare so tar as protection of the soldier is concerned, well known Britishers are telling th v war -office through the ,- press that armor is a natural necessity in these uays of machine guns and high power ed rifles. ..,' Score! of suggestions for modern 1916 armor em.anailng from scientists 1 have narrowed down, to the practica bility of a three piece suit of tempered steel that would protect the forehead. breast and abdomen the three vital spots of the body. The favored head piece, will, if authorized by the war office, take the form of the highly tem pered steel skull cap-like protector now worn by the French to minimize the danger of shrapnel. . The breastplate would be a thin leather covered hard ened plate of steel curved to fit over the chest and held by straps that go over the shoulers and around tha waist. The abdominal protector is sug gested In the form of another curved sheet of steel fitting over the lower ribs and extending down to the bones of the hips. , The British war office four years ago experimented with a bullet proof breastplate at Aldershot where the de vice shed all the rifle and machine gun bullets that were fired against It at ranges of one foot to five hundred yards. The breastplate was rejected on the ground that It added to much weight to the equipment of the soldier and reduced his marching efficiency. With a war of great proportions that will probably last many more months or perhaps years and with the thou sands of dead and the tens of thou sands of wounded, the war office is believed to be reconsidering Its objec tion to armor. The men of the trenches at least probably will be thus equipped, accord ing to information today. One of Britain's leading advocates of armor is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the noted author of "Sherlock Holmes." In a lengthy message from his borne at Wlndlesham, Crowbrough, Sussex, to a London dally, Sir Arthur cited aa action of the British- In torthero France on May 9, when several bri gades were decimated In an effort to rush across 300 yards lnt-rvenjn be tween the British and the German trenches. He wdarne: "You must either abandon such at tacks or ynti must find artificial pro tection ur the men."' - , Sir Arthur suggests three-piece suits of steel plates for the soldiers, nut goes further in advocating a modern "testudo" a cover used by the Roman soldiers in attack a wall, formed by overlapping their oblong shields above their heads. Sir Arthur's modern te tudo, he would put ou wheels to cover the men as they ch&rge the German trenches. He says: "These numerous armor plated bod ies could rush with small loss over a space which had already been cle&rea as far as possible of obstacles, and so (Continued cn Two.) '
