This chapter focuses on the effect of the conflict brought by the First World War on the imperial press system. It also explains that the imperial system survived the First World War and was successfully mobilized as part of the empire's broader war effort. It then discusses the new relationship formed between Reuters and the British government and that the relationship proved to be the precursor to a wider attempt to move official propaganda arrangements onto a more effective basis. It investigated the private enterprise and news services throughout the war. It then examines the Britishness and the imperial press system in the wake of the war.
