An observer describes the scene 'up School' broadcast from Westminster School
Today listeners are to hear for the first time something of the annual Shrove Tuesday excitement at the great public school which has grown up under the shadow of Westminster Abbey. Once again twenty boys are to struggle together, each making a frantic effort to get the biggest portion of the pancake which will entitle him to a guinea.
'School', in which the age-old 'Greaze' takes place, was the monks' dormitory before the dissolution of the Benedictine Monastery in 1540; in this great room the entire school was taught from Elizabethan times until 1884. It is now used daily for Latin Prayers at the end of the school day, and on all occasions when the whole school are assembled together.
The first mention of tossing the pancake is believed to have been made in the autobiography of Jeremy Bentham , who was at Westminster from 1755 to 1760.
On page 6 will be found a vivid article describing the scene, by S.J. de Lotbiniere, Director of Outside Broadcasts.

A year ago this week hundreds of post-offices up and down the country were being issued with supplies of new-pattern de luxe pens. The hard-dying legend of 'the post-office pen' was given a crushing blow.
Widely and amusingly commented on by Press and public at the time, this piece of news, small in itself, was rightly regarded as one more move in a general campaign. This afternoon Kenneth Adam will talk about the steps that have been taken during the last year or two to brighten and improve the postal services of the country.
