    THE STARTING POINT OF THE MARCH WAS AT NAPHILL, THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE R.A.F.'S BOMBER COMMAND. MANY ARE EXPECTED TO JOIN THE MARCH ALONG ITS ROUTE WHICH IS DUE TO PASS THE MAJOR UNITED STATES AIR FORCE BASE AT RUISLIP, IN MIDDLESEX, ON SUNDAY.

    THE FINAL STAGE OF THE MARCH WILL PAS THROUGH HYDE PARK AND WHITEHALL TO TRAFALGAR SQUARE, WHERE THE CROWD IS EXPECTED TO SWELL TO SEVERAL THOUSAND FOR THE RALLY.

    AS THE MARCHERS SET OFF FROM NAPHILL, ANOTHER GROUP LEFT BY COACH FOR CHEQUERS, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER'S COUNTRY RESIDENCE, TO LEAVE A MESSAGE FOR PRIME MINISTER WILSON. HOWEVER, MR WILSON WILL NOT GET THE MESSAGE UNTIL AFTER THE EASTER VACATION -- HE IS SPENDING EASTER IN THE SCILLY ISLES.
