already know what tliey will be.
Boy or girl, the proper salute
is 41 guns.
They will be fired in Hyde Park,
just a whoop and a holler from
Buckingham Palace; at the an-
cient Tower of London; at stately
Edinburgh Castle in Scotland; at
the huge military training depot
at Aldershot; and at the big naval
ports of Portsmouth, Chatham and
