Remember 1914 ?
The Monarch is King George V. Prime Minister is H. H. Asquith (Liberal). US President is Woodrow Wilson (Democrat). World War One starts; on the 4th August 11.00pm Britain declares war on Germany after the German Army invades neutral Belgium; the Royal Navy is in action the very next day. By the end of the year the War was already claiming thousands of lives. Sir Ernest Shackleton sets sail on the Endurance from Plymouth in an attempt to cross Antarctica. Although Edward VII died in 1910, the start of WWI is taken as the end of the Edwardian Era.
