Empire soldiers entertain in a parade of camp concerts given by Overseas contingents stationed in the United Kingdom
From the plains of Canada, from the bush of Australia and New Zealand, from the rocky crags of Newfoundland, and the sun-parched plains of India, Britain's sons under arms have flocked to her in her hour of need. Today many of them are seeing for the first time the English countryside, of which they have heard so much, and from which the forebears of so many of them came. A field-day on moor or meadowland, the march back along lanes fragrant with honeysuckle, a sing-song in camp, when the men return in spirit for a while to their native lands and sing their own songs so rousingly.
Some of these songs-the French
Canadians' ' Alouette', Newfoundland's sea-shanties, Indian folk songs -we shall hear in the first programme of this kind to be broadcast. There will be microphones at camp concerts by the New Zealanders, the Canadians, the Indians, and, it is hoped, the Australians.

English Suite No. 3, in G minor
Prelude — Allemande — Courante —
Sarabande-Gavottes 1 and 2-Gigue played by . Lucille Wallace (harpsichord)
Parry's summing-up of the qualities of Bach's English Suites can hardly be bettered: ' The immense scope of all the preludes and the wide range of resource which they display, the weight, variety, and unvarying high level of material of the allemandes and courantes, the supreme dignity, pathos, and warmth of colour and expression of the sarabandes, the sparkling vivacity of the bourrees and the gavottes, and the superb texture of the gigues combine to make this series of suites stand entirely alone as representing the very highest examples of the type in existence.'
Presented by M. H. Allen
