BORN TODAY: in Los Angeles, California, to parents originally from Guangdong province in China, – Major “Buffalo” Wong Sun-Shui, member of the Guangdong Air Force Academy from the early 1930s, who died on the day after his twenty seventh birthday from combat injuries sustained while fighting the Japanese air force.

Women’s suffrage: British suffragettes hold a national day of protest when prayers read aloud are used to disrupt church services across the country. “O Lord, we beseech Thee, save Thy servants Emmeline Pankhurst and Mary Richardson, and all who are enduring torture for conscience sake.”

Later, at night, they torch a collection of railway carriages in King’s Norton.
