This item from the Nov. 8, 1935 paper calling on all citizens to commemorate Remembrance Day, refers to the Italo-Ethiopian War, one of the many smaller conflicts that took place between WWI and WWII. The result was Ethiopia’s subjection to Italian rule, and is often seen as one of the episodes that prepared the way for WWII, as it demonstrated the ineffectiveness of the League of Nations when League decisions were not supported by the general powers. The war, by giving substance to Italian imperialist claims, contributed to international tensions between the fascist states and the Western democracies. (Encyclopedia Britannica).
