Summary: A religious propaganda film aimed at Royal Air Force personnel.
Description: Film opens with the Reverend Canon L Wright CBE, QHC, Chaplain-in-Chief to the Royal Air Force addressing the camera from his desk. He refers to some pamphlets entitled ‘Per Ardua ad Astra’ and hopes they are provocative enough to make you ask about the Mission in the Royal Air Force. The Rev. Canon Wright has a friendly, open face, and a strong voice giving gravitas to his speech. He asks – "What is it all for? – to bring together the various church faiths in the RAF to serve Jesus Christ. What do you expect the Mission to be? November 1952 in the UK, overseas during November to December 1952. What do you want me to do about it? – I hope you will all ask this. The Mission comprises civilian clergy and Ministers who will come to your station. I hope you will listen to them for their message is vital to our nation and every one of us. Now is the time for greatness". The Reverend Canon Wright stands up from his desk. "Greatness relies on trusting God. Take the cross to find happiness in the service of others".
