    SCU F.M. Slim speaks:-



    "Taken by a large and overall I think the British soldier is the best soldier in the world, and that is evidenced by the behaviour of the British Army at the present time."



    CU F.M. Slim continues:-



    "There is nothing the matter with the youth of this country. What is wrong is the persons of my age - oh yes it is, if you take the youth of to-day and give him a decent job, explain to him why he is doing it, and given him a little bit of reasonable leadership, & I think you will get the finest response that we have ever had in our history."



    SCU F.M. Slim continues:-



    "I am naturally highly honoured that her Majesty has accepted the recommendation of the Australian government and appointed me to this position. And I shall do my very best to be of some service to the Australian people and to the Empire."
