Defenders of the Realm

Defenders of the Realm

Dear Ed,

It is encouraging to see that the workers of this country will take action to defend this city and surrounds in the event of an invasion from afar (one of those "nuc" subs or whatever) entering Port Nicholson.

I refer of course to the four "Long Tom" type cannon (vertically) awaiting installation in the emplacement generously, or perhaps unknowingly, provided by the university, authorities (under the guise of a [unclear: Von] something-or-other building on Glasgow Street).

No doubt a few students (or perhaps just Bones Couper) will find enough energy to throw a dart or two in the general direction of the waterfront in such an event.

Have no fear,

The revolution will not reach here! Heads down, back to work, PACO Massey
