    Sound Effects. Morrison says that the best A.R.P. for all countries is the building of a peaceful & prosperous World, and that A.R.P. policy must be a matter for the Government nationally to give us protection against Aerial attack as near as possible 100 percent adequate. Anderson says...that their has been no compulsion on anyone to join, except that inner compulsion of a sense of public duty, which makes them give up their leisure in peace and perhaps their lives in war-time, and that is fitting to re-affirm that great tradition. Natural sound of assembly singing "Jerusalem"
