With his flair for rousing old songs, John Rorke is likely to be 'unusually yours' this afternoon.
One of his greatest successes on the air was in that popular series 'Old Music-Halls' - a success he shared with Denis O'Neil, Tessa Deane , and Bertha Willmott , in a series that began in 1933, ran through the whole of 1934, and was revived the following year.

General Sir Hugh Elles , K.C.B..
General Sir Hugh Jamieson Elles , who speaks for the Army every third week in this regular War Commentary, has had a distinguished career.
He has been described as the perfect soldier, a man not only of keen brain and intelligence, but of great personal courage and daring. He served through the South African War and throughout the Great War. In this he was the first officer to command the tanks-he himself led them into action at the Battle of Cambrai on November 20, 1917. He became Colonel Commandant of the Royal Tank Corps in 1934. He was Director of Military
Training at the War Office from 1930 to 1933, and Master General of Ordnance at the War Office from 1934 to 1938. He is now Regional Commissioner for South-West England.

Mozart's so-called 'Haffner ' Symphony, No. 35, in D, originated in a serenade composed in 1782 at his father's request for a festivity at the house of his Salzburg friends, the Haffners. It was written in great haste--so great that when his father returned the score to him Mozart was ' quite surprised' at its effectiveness.
The six-movement Serenade was cut down to a symphony the following year by the omission of the introductory march and one of the minuets, leaving four movements, but the serenade-like character of part of the finale reminds one of the origin of the work.
