Whether or not the Le Rossignols had ever contemplated leaving Berlin1 after the events in Sarajevo, their decision was made for them by the British declaration of war on Germany; a declaration that immediately confined all British nationals to the German state. The suddenness of the British entry into the war however, meant that Germany at first had no real idea what to do with such people, and it wasn’t until mid August 1914 that a vague set of guidelines emerged outlining the responsibilities and the freedom(s)—or otherwise—permitted to those who had now become ‘enemy’ citizens.
