Editorial comments: Time and place uncertain. See Finchley Times, 28 April 1967. "The Red Cross Society and other voluntary services should be expanded as "daily kindnesses count as much as skilled attention in hospitals," said Finchley’s MP. ... Mrs Thatcher went on to say that the State could obviously not undertake all the work done by voluntary services, but that many people did not realise this and took them for granted. And before she left to return to the House of Commons, she congratulated members of the Red Cross for another wonderful year’s service".
