Needed By Britain After War
VICE-ADMIRAL'S WARNING British Official Wireless Rec. 2 p.m. RUGBY, July 18. A warning against disbanding too much of the British Fleet after the war with Japan was given by ViceAdmiral J. E. T. Harper, chairman of the Navy League Sea Cadet Corps Committee, speaking at a luncheon of the London Rotary Club. ' Vice-Admiral Harper said the Navy League's most important work now was to make certain that we retained sufficient sea power after the war. Should we once again disarm to such a point that an aggressor enemy might be tempted to attack us by our apparent inability to resist him? he asked. After the fall of Japan, he added, there would be an even greater need for the Navy League to remind people of the importance of maintaining a strong British Navy.
