in the presence of THE PRESIDENT of the French Republic Broadcast from Vimy
This afternoon, on the actual battlefield, in the presence of the President of the French Republic and more than 6,000 Canadians who served, or are relatives of those who served, in the war, His Majesty King Edward is to unveil the memorial dedicated to nearly 12,000 Canadians who fell in action and have no known grave.
Listeners are to hear the speech of His Majesty and that of the President of the French Republic, and it is hoped to arrange for a Canadian who can speak French as well as English to describe the scene, so that he can say a few words in French for the benefit of French Canadians who are listening.
The memorial is the work of the Canadian sculptor, Walter Allward. Two main pylons, each 138 feet high, stand on a base 230 feet long. There are twenty sculptured figures each 12 feet high. The names of all the missing are engraved on the base.
The Canadians present at the ceremony have travelled specially from Canada in five ships set apart for the pilgrimage. They will return to England on Tuesday, and on Wednesday there will be a short service at the Cenotaph, and a detachment will proceed to Westminster Abbey to lay a spray of Canadian flowers on the grave of the Unknown Warrior.

An appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL NATIONAL HOSPITAL FOR CONSUMPTION, Ventnor, by The Lord EBBISHAM,
G.B.E., President of the Hospital The Royal National Hospital for Consumption, Ventnor, founded in 1867, was among the pioneers of open-air treatment for tuberculosis. Since those days open-air treatment has been supplemented by many advances in medical treatment, but the Hospital still retains its place as one of the leading hospitals for the treatment of this disease.
It is situated in Ventnor on account of the climate, but patients come from all over the British Isles and its 157 beds are always full. The work is therefore of national importance.
Advances in treatment are saving the lives of many who a few years ago would have had little hope of recovery, but the annual expenditure exceeds £ 27,000 and the assured income is less than £ 3,000 a year.
