A description of the Ceremony by Major J. B. S. Bourne-May (Late Coldstream Guards)
Broadcast from Hyde Park
This morning listeners will be able to visualise a ceremonial parade as splendid as Trooping the Colour which was broadcast the other week. Every fifteen years new Colours are presented to certain battalions of the Brigade of Guards by his Majesty the King. The parade, under the command of the Major-General commanding Brigade cf Guards, will form up in Hyde Park, and the band of each regiment and the drums of each battalion will be on parade.
Queen Mary and the ladies of the Royal party will arrive by motor-car and set down at the Royal Dais. The King, accompanied by the Duke of York and attended by the Field Officer in Brigade Waiting, two equerries, and an escort of Household Cavalry, will reach the saluting base at 11 a.m. His Majesty will be received with the Royal Salute. The Band will play while His Majesty inspects the line.
And so the ceremony will proceed : the consecration and presentation of the Colours, the march past, and the playing of the National Anthem in full by the Band.
The thousands watching, the millions listening, will remember that twenty years ago His Majesty, then Prince of Wales, served in France with the Brigade to whom this morning he is presenting Colours.

What do you think ?
Working for Profit, or Working for the Public
The question of production for use or production for profit is being debated every day all over the country from the standpoint of the consumer. It may be interesting to consider it, for a change, from that of the worker. What is the essential difference between work in a Government office and work in a private business house? What difference in outlook does the one type of work require and produce as compared with the other type of work ? How far does the public-service motive really operate in a Government office, and how far does the profit-making motive really operate in private business ?
Douglas Jerrold 's qualification for thinking aloud on this subject is that his life has been nearly equally divided between Government service in Army, Ministry of Food, and Treasury, and ; private business.
