Relayed from the Royal Albert Hall
The trumpeters of the Blues will march into the centre of the hall and sound a fanfare, which will be echoed from the top balcony by the trumpeter of the Life Guards.
The hall is dimmed, and from the distance sounds are heard of a band approaching and of troops singing on the march. Battalions march up through the hall as to the front line. Accompanied by the bands, the audience will sing the following war songs :—
Are We Downhearted?
Take Me Back to Dear Old Blighty
Pack Up Your Troubles
Keep the Home Fires Burning
The Long, Long Trail Tipperary.
In an interval in the singing of the war songs a company of the London Scottish with their pipers march through the hall. On the last notes of ' Tipperary ' and as the end of the column disappears, the Massed Bands of the Brigade of Guards play ' Land of Hope and Glory,' and all join in the song.
The Choirs enter the darkened hall preceded by the Cross. The Choirs will be in three parties, the first headed by the Cross and the banner of St. George, in red cassocks and white cottas. The second will be headed by the banner of St. Andrew followed by the Choir in black cassocks and white surplices, and the third headed by the banner of St. Patrick with the choir in purple cassocks and white cottas. Then will come the Chaplain to the Bishop of London carrying the crozier in front of the Bishop. The procession moves slowly towards the organ singing ' Lead, Kindly Light,' assemble in crescent formation under the organ enclosed by the bandsmen of the Brigade of Guards in scarlet.
