' If War Comes'
Commander Stephen King-Hall
This is the first of a group of three weekly talks that are being included as part of the general Civil Defence series. This series has been running fortnightly since February.
These three talks are designed to bring before the citizen in a matter-of-fact way a picture of the realities that he and his family would have to face in the event of war. Mr. and Mrs. Everyman would, in such a case, find themselves in the front line, whether they liked it or not, and by listening to these broadcasts they should obtain an idea of what to expect.
Commander King-Hall needs little introduction as a broadcaster. He is a seasoned microphone hand with years of broadcasting, political, and literary experience behind him. His opening talk will he general in character, setting the scene for Commander Cave-Browne-Cave and W. P. Matthew , who will give the two subsequent talks.
