Embedded text or transcriptLORD MAYOR'S SHOW
It has been arranged to hold the Empire part of it in a dense fog this year, so as not to make Hitler jealous.
B.B.C. TO BROADCAST ARABIC. The gravity of the situation is fully appreciated and, as usual, every effort is being made to leave no stone unturned, etc.
SOCIETY ROMANCE
The engagement is announced of Jubilee, Booboo's charming daughter and prominent Regent's Park lovely, to Babu, the well-known sportsman. "It was love at first sight." said the accused winningly. "Mummy is very upset. Daddy will probably cut me off with a peanut."
BLACKOUT IN THE NEXT WAR
Certainly not, sir, dammit. I will NOT put on this gas-mask until I know who is going to pay for it
It seems likely that the present "who-pays-for-protective-measures" argument will extend right up to the last minute.
SCOTS GREYS VICTORY
