Appeal on behalf of the Officers' Families Fund by Lieutenant-General Sir Brian Horrocks, K.C.B., K.B.E., D.S.O., M.C.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Officers' Families Fund was founded in 1899 to give financial help and advice on all personal problems to the widows and dependants of officers of the Royal Navy and the Army killed in action or where death was attributable to service. Grants are made to relieve temporary financial distress; to help with the cost of education and training; and, when possible, to augment the incomes of elderly widows who have only their pensions. Occasionally, temporary assistance can be considered for the dependants of serving officers should they be in special difficulties.
Unfortunately applications show no sign of decreasing, and expenditure greatly exceeds income. The Fund depends entirely on voluntary contributions, and subscriptions are urgently needed.

Through Mary Graham's disclosure of Mr. Pecksniff's behaviour, Tom Pinch is forced to leave his employment. He goes to London, where he is warmly received by John Westlock.

Later he learns from John Westlock that a stranger is offering him employment.
Martin and Mark land in England, determined to make for the Blue Dragon to learn from Mrs. Lupin the whereabouts of Mary Graham. To their astonishment they see Mr. Pecksniff laying the foundation stone of a school; and Martin later realises that this is to be built from his plans, which Pecksniff has stolen.
A series of four talks by Goronwy Rees
1-' The Common View '
It is nearly ten years since the final collapse of Hitler's house of cards: years that have seen the Nuremberg trials, the humiliations of military occupation, the Berlin air lift, the great multitudes of refugees flocking from the East, the slow and painful rebuilding of bomb-shattered cities and a ruined economy. Today Western Germany seems about to achieve national sovereignty. What impression have all these events made on the average German? What are the Germans thinking now? And what do they think about Britain and the people of this country which, so short a time ago, they set out to destroy?
Goronwy Rees was sent to Germany by the BBC to find out the answers to these questions. He has travelled the length and breadth of the country and has talked to men and women of all classes and shades of opinion.
