Wireless, via an interstitial vortex generator from Jeffries tube 7? Perhaps routed via the French embassy?

Close enough. As diplomatic communications had been severed, and Jagow refused to allow the German embassy to pass on a telegram on the grounds "‘it might awaken the impression in the public unfamiliar with diplomatic usage that we had hounded Austria-Hungary into war," Berchtold simply sent a telegram 'en clair' to the Serbian government, the first time a declaration of war was made in this manner.

Over to you for the next question.

Q: Which national air force/air corps at the start of WW1 consisted of just one aircraft, which never flew a combat mission?

As there have been no replies to my question, I'll give the answer.

The Canadian Aviation Corps consisted of 1 aircraft, which was sent to England but never flew a combat mission.

Tip:He was a chairmen of something happened in 30 October 1918.

Was he Hüseyin Rauf, who signed the Armistice with the Allies on October 30, 1918? But I don't think he was a general in the Turkish Army, he was a diplomat and politician. Or was he once in the Navy?

Best Regards!
Navy Captain Hüseyin Rauf Bey (Orbay) (27.7. 1881, İstanbul - 1.7. 1964, İstanbul), The last Naval Mnister of Ottoman Empire who signed the armistrace at Mundros. Known as Hero of Balkan War.
