This phase of the former Prince of Wtik-s' life has been noted with sonic apprehension amog the die-hard Troy ranks of the empire. It began, perhaps, with the prince's interest in the British Legion nnd the problems of the exsoldier's, which started to be critical in Enfi- luiul immediately after the World war. But it broadened until on Christmas night, 1928, radio listeners in Britain were, astonished to hear the prince's voice" on their loud speakers, saying: "Then- are a quarter million moners, not only with no money now, but who for six months have had none. Everything is gone, and they have nothing left to sell.

There was time to have saved her had the opposition party stood firm and courageous. But it did not.
