A personal tribute by Andre Maurois
Marshal Lyautey whose life Andre Maurois has written, was one of the creators of the French Empire. He served with the French army in Indo-China in 1894 against the Upper Tongking pirates, and later accompanied his chief, General Gallieni, to Madagascar where he put into practice new and successful methods of colonial government. Before the war Marshal Lyautey was appointed High Commissioner and Resident-General in Morocco.
During the war and later he carried on administration in Morocco, conquered the Atlas, and was rewarded by being made a Marshal of France in 1921. A statue of Lyautey is to be unveiled at Casablanca on November 5.

Characters in order of speaking
The lounge of Barlow's residence, near London, on an Armistice anniversary, during a broadcast of the Albert Hall Festival of Remembrance
Production by Howard Rose
The object of this play is not only to define the differences in outlook between the generation that experienced the last war and the generation that fears to experience the next, but to convey something of the almost incredible spirit of companionship which drew men so closely together during the war years in which they served. The scene of the play, a typical English home of 1938 is laid at a time when those assembled are listening to a broadcast of the Albert Hall Festival of Remembrance, four people, two of the younger and two of the middle-aged generation, discuss patriotism, its causes and effects. From time to time the scene shifts to a gunner's battery during the war, in which one of the characters was then serving as Officer-in-Command.
This play was originally scheduled for production on Armistice Day, but the date was later changed owing to the fact that the full programme from the Albert Hall was being taken.
