KING GEORGE VI in the presence of the President of the French Republic broadcast from Villers-Bretonneux
Ten miles east of Amiens is a cemetery of 2,000 graves known as Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery. To reach the Australian War Memorial one ruust pass through this cemetery, and here and there, on a stone, is to be read : 'An Australian Infantryman Known Unto God'.
But whoever he may have been, his name is on the Memorial, which is dedicated to the Australian dead whose graves are unknown. In March, 1918, over 800 Australians fell in this sector, and in April 3,000.
The unveiling of the Memorial will be the final ceremony performed by the King during his visit to France. He will say goodbye to the French President at the Memorial.

Alan Murray was educated at Malvern and at Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he was a fellow-student of Jack Hulbert. They were very good friends and together wrote the annual musical show of the Footlights Dramatic Club. After leaving Cambridge, Murray went into the army and made music his hobby. He composed several well-known dance tunes with Ray Noble and also wrote a number of ballads. After he retired from the. army, he devoted most of his time to composition and widened the scope of his work with several orchestral works.

Brahms's Violin Sonata in G was the first of three sonatas for violin and piano. Composed during the summer months of 1878-9 while Brahms was on holiday at Portschach, it is a fine work, particularly from the point of the writing for the violin, which has the predominant part. ' The whole work ', says Dr. Karl Geiringer, in his study of the life and work of Brahms, ' reflects the atmosphere of the beautiful Carinthian holiday resort where it was created. It is a composition full of restrained sweetness and that yearning tenderness which-as fo often in Brahms-seems to smile through tears.'
' Caught in an Everest blizzard'
J. L. Longland
Here is another talk in this series by people who have had some unusual experience of danger or hardship by land, sea, or air.
J. L. Longland , the distinguished mountaineer and a member of the 1933 Everest Expedition, was responsible for the picked party of native porters who had established the highest camp which has ever been pitched on Everest. Tonight he will describe how the party was caught by a blizzard on its exciting descent to safety, and how after three hours' exposure under appalling conditions they succeeded by nightfall in getting in the last of the stragglers.
