Celebration in London of the Birthday of HIS MAJESTY THE KING with a commentary by Major J. B. S. BOURNE-MAY
(late Coldstream Guards)
Relayed from The HORSE GUARDS, WHITEHALL
The Ceremony opens with the arrival of the Royal Procession, and the Royal Salute
H.M. The King inspects the troops, after which the massed bands and drums of the Brigade of Guards play a slow march, counter-march, halt, and play a quick march.
A Drummer beats the Drummers' Call, and the escort marches up to the Colour, the band and drums playing the ' British Grenadiers.' The Sergeant-Major receives the Colour and hands it to the Ensign for the Colour. The escort salutes the Colour by presenting arms, and bands and drums play - 'God Save the King.'
Colour and escort march down the line of Guards, and the whole Parade marches past THE KING in slow time, and again in quick time, and finally forms up in line and gives the Royal Salute.
The Household Cavalry marches off. THE KING places himself at the head of the King's Guard and the Guards march off to Buckingham Palace headed by the Massed Bands, Drums and Pipes

Mr. JAMES AGATE : Miss Hilda Trevelyan '
Miss Hilda Trevelyan , whose career
Mr. James Agate sketches tonight, is known as ' the Barrie actress,' for the very good reason that she has played fourteen characters in plays by the famous Scots dramatist. Above all, her name is identified with the part of Wendy in Peter Pan , whicn she created in 1904 and has played over nine hundred times since. Tonight, listeners will hear the voice of this delightful star in two famous Barrie parts : as Maggie Wylie in two extracts from What Every Woman Knows, a part she first played at the Duke of York's Theatre in 1908, and as Miss Thing in A Kiss for Cinderella, which was first produced at Wyndham's Theatre in 1916. (The scenes illustrated were recorded by means of gramophone records)
