Sir Ronald Storrs , K.C.M.G., C.B.E.
One of the greatest living experts on Near Eastern affairs, Sir Ronald Storrs was appointed Oriental Secretary to the British Agency in Egypt before the last war. While there he met T. E. Lawrence , when that extraordinary genius was preparing his plans to deal with the Arabian situation. Sir Ronald Storrs was not only a political collaborator with. but also a close friend of, Lawrence, and there are few men living more qualified to speak of one who was perhaps the most unique character of the last war.
Sir Ronald is an experienced microphone hand, having broadcast on many occasions, both to school, and in the evening programmes, on Near Eastern questions.

Leader, Tate Gilder
Conductor, Stanford Robinson
The very phrase ' Drury Lane production ' conjures up in the mind one word-Success. At no time has the tradition of this famous theatre been more thoroughly maintained than during the twelve years under review. Rose Marie , with its stupendous stage effects and tuneful score, ushered in a long series of musical successes. Among these, from which music and song will be heard tonight, are The Desert Song, Show Boat, Netc Moon , The Three Musketeers, Cavalcade, and, of course, the Ivor Novello series which concluded with The Dancing Years
with The Caravan Players
