Gad Mr. Chamberlain Well done!
Shelter

"SITUATION QUIET" AT LORD'S. 200 detectives are drafted to Lord's to stop recurrence of disorderly comments at Test Matches. Fears are expressed as to the consequences if Australia ever wins there
"LONDON'S AIR DEFENCES TO BE DOUBLED" - Hore-Belisha. This can mean only that "Mons Meg", the historic gun at Edinburgh Castle that hasn't been used since it bust in 1640, is being towed down. A squad of Chelsea pensioners is to be called up at once, since they alone know how to fire it.
AV TANK AV GOT HOME AT LAST. After long silence, Garbo is reported in car capsize at Stockholm.

Excavations of Ancient Rome
