    Dowager Marchioness of Reading calls on women to do their duty in Air Raid Precaution Services.

  • Description

    Titles read: "ARP".

    Location of events unknown - probably Reading, Berkshire.

    The Dowager Marchioness of Reading (Lady Reading) sits behind a desk in an office and makes a speech to camera about ARP - Air Raid Precaution. She talks of British women never failing to carry out self-imposed duties as we see brief shots of women workers from the First World War - packing and repairing trucks, clipping bus tickets. She says women will be inspired to do their duty from a love of peace, and says this preparation will show any aggressors that any air attacks on this country will fail to destroy the British moral.
