LONDON ANGUS ASSOCIATION –

The annual general meeting of the London Angus Association was held at “Caledonia,” 2 Grosvenor Place, with Lord Forres of Glenogil presiding. Lord Forres referred with deep regret to the death of Lord Lyell of Kinnordy, killed in action in North Africa. He read a letter of thanks from Lady Lyell in response to a message of condolence sent to her on behalf of the Council and members. Turning to the annual report, the Chairman commented on the fact that the membership had fallen by one only during 1942. The accounts showed a surplus of £15 12s 2d for the year as at December 31, 1942. He referred with particular gratification to the donation of £10 which had been received during the year under review from Her Majesty the Queen. Passing on to personal items, Lord Forres read portions of a postcard sent by Mr John Valentine to the Hon. Secretary. Mr Valentine was formerly Hon. Treasurer, and is a prisoner of war in Germany. The Chairman mentioned that Commissioner David Lamb (formerly Almoner of the Association and now in America) had recovered after a serious operation, and that Mr C.M. Stirling (one of the Vice-Chairmen) was also well again after a painful illness. The Earl of Strathmore was re-elected President. The Vice-Presidents are the Earl of Airlie, the Earl of Dalhousie, and the Earl of Southesk. Lord Forres was re-elected Chairman; Mr J.B. Crichton and Mr C.M. Stirling, Vice-Chairmen; Mr A.B. Inglis, Hon. Treasurer; and Mr William Chalmers, Hon. Secretary. The sixteen other members of the council were re-elected [italics] en bloc [/italics]. After tea had been served a social and dance (organised by Mr John McInnes) was held in aid of the Scottish Prisoners-of-War Fund.

MUSSOLINI RESIGNS

KING OF ITALY IN COMMAND OF ARMED FORCES

BADOGLIO AS PRIME MINISTER

TWO PROCLAMATIONS TO THE NATION

“THE WAR CONTINUES”

Mussolini has resigned. The King of Italy has assumed supreme command of the Italian armed forces. Marshal Badoglio is the new Prime Minister.

This was officially broadcast from Rome late last night, together with proclamations from King Victor Emmanuel and Badoglio.

The announcement of Mussolini’s resignation was followed by the King of Italy’s proclamation, in which he said that his country, “through the valour of her troops and the determination of her civilian population, will again find, in the respect of her old institutions, the way of recovery.”

Badoglio’s proclamation announced that he took over the military government of the country with full powers. “The war goes on. All must group themselves round the King-Emperor,” he said.
