An Appeal on behalf of OFFICERS' FAMILIES' INDUSTRIES, by Lady MONT
In 1919 the Officers' Families' Association started with a grant of £300 from Queen Mary's Needlework Guild, and, with no further financial help than a similar sum from the Officers' Association, has carried on for sixteen years and paid out over £19,000 in wages.
It is not a charity ; it gives work to the widows and dependants of officers who fell in the Great War, and to the dependants of the three Services. Material is provided ; the work is done at home, and is paid for monthly, whether it has been sold or not. In the shop at [address removed]may be seen the beautiful things that are made, of which a selection is sent out on approval to any address in London or the provinces.
Until now this shop, which is run entirely on business lines, has neither accepted donations nor invited subscriptions, but it has become impossible to continue without a larger working capital. Lady Montgomery-Massingberd, who is to make the appeal, is a member of the committee and wife of the Chief of the Imperial General Staff, and so directly in touch with the Services.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]


About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
