sung by Sinclair Logan (baritone)
Sinclair Logan , singer, organist, teacher, and composer, was born in Cheshire in 1897. He is. partly Scottish and partly Irish, and was educated at Worcester College and the Royal Normal College for the Blind.
His first public appearances after the last war were with Lady Pear-son's Concert Party, which collected so many thousands of pounds for St. Dunstan's. He contrives to make one unaware of his handicap of sightlessness. Indeed he has made himself independent of it, travelling alone to wherever his profession calls him. even spending his holidays climbing in the Alps.

A feature programme for Canada's Dominion Day, written by Eric Gibbs and H. Rooney Pelletier
'Produced by H. Rooney Pelletier
The Canadian War Memorial at Vimy Ridge, two vast pylons which shadow the symbolic figure of a Canadian mother, stands upon ground given to Canada by the Government of France. In the minds of all Canadians the Memorial is something more than a monument to their dead-it is a symbol of Canadian courage and enterprise.
The men of Canada are with Great Britain again, and many, those in the Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force, have been at grips with the enemy. The Army, meanwhile, is eagerly awaiting its chance to carry on the spirit of Vimy.
These are the facts which
Eric Gibbs and H. Rooney Pelletier wiil embody in their programme...Pelletier, by the way, was sent by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to France to give the commentaries at the dedication of the Memorial before King Edward VIII and President Lebrun. He had then the formidable task of giving commentaries in both French and English.
