  • Shortly before midnight the silence of Orange is shattered as train whistles blow and fire bells ring announcing the abdication of the Kaiser. The Model Band parades, cars toot their horns and people take to the streets, many in their night attire

  • Emperor Karl of Austria abdicates. Army aeroplane hangars in Vienna are torched, shootings occur in the streets of Salzburg and Austrian navy boats are scuttled to prevent their Allied capture.
