Part 2 of 2

New Zealand Broadcasting Unit commentator Doug Laurenson [Military Service no. 34957] records a commentary about developments in the six months since Italy entered the war.

He discusses enemy propaganda broadcasts and the blows to Italian morale caused by the recent dismissal of military leaders.
The RAF has been raiding Germany and events happening now may indicate a massive advance of our troops against Libya.
