Appeal on behalf of ex-Services Welfare Society by J. H. HAYES , M.P., Vice-Chamberlain. of His Majesty's Household
ONE of the most pitiablo figures in the ranks of War sufferers is the ex-Service man who has become mentally afflicted. It was to help such cases that, under the presidency of Sir Frederick Milner , the ex-Services Welfare Society was founded. At the present moment, ton years after the War, the homes belonging to the Society are full to overflowing. Cure, one would think, could only be slow and comparatively seldom in such cases ; but it is amazing how many are the instances in which, by careful treatment, the Society has saved men from the Lunatic Asylum. A particularly interesting feature of the Society's work is the colony they have founded at Leather. head, where a largo number of men are trained and employed under sheltered conditions. On April 14 lust year His Majesty the King, accom. panied by the Queen, visited this colony and expressed his deep appreciation of the work.
Donations should be sent to the ex-Services
Welfare Society, [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.
