Appeal on behalf of the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home for Disabled Ex-Servicemen, Worthing, by Lt.-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 Lt.-General Sir Brian Horrocks , [address removed]
The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home, Worthing, better known as Gifford House, was founded after the first world war as a permanent home for some fifty totally disabled Ex-Servicemen. In 1933 it moved from Roehampton to Worthing and a scheme was evolved whereby grievously disabled Ex-Servicemen, who are still able to live at home but for whom an ordinary holiday is out of the question, could have a change at the seaside. This change of climate and environment combined with medical treatment often results in a permanent improvement in their condition.
Although Government grants are received towards the treatment of war-pensioner patients, the Home needs more than £ 20,000 yearly from voluntary sources to carry on its work.

7—' Pate-in-Peril '
Produced by James Crampsey
(George Davies is appearing in ' The Tinkers of the World at the Gateway Theatre, Edinburgh; Tom Fleming broadcasts by permission of the Gateway Theatre, Edinburgh; David Steuart by permission of Perth Repertory Theatre)
Darsie Latimer now knows that the mysterious Laird of the Solway Lochs -he who has twice saved the young man's life, first from the Solway quick-sand and later from the murderous hand of Cristal Nixon-is an attainted Jacobite. He knows, too, that the Laird not only has abducted him, prisoner-like, into the forbidden England of his birth, but has let Latimer's Scottish friends believe he has been murdered.
In England, in Cumberland to be more precise, our young hero finds himself arraigned before the magistrate, Mr. Justice Foxley, when the Laird, apparently known as Squire Ingoldsby in these parts, seeks a warrant for his custody. The hearing of the case is interrupted by the arrival from Scotland of Peter Peebles. Thereafter Latimer is shown that he, like the Laird, bears on his brow the unmistakable horse-shoe mark of the Redgauntlet of Wandering Willie's tale!
