    SOUND EFFECTS:

    LV Her Majesty the Queen speaks: "Perhaps, constantly travelling, as the King and I do, through the length and breadth of these islands, I am fortunate in being able to see a clear picture of the astonishing work that women are doing everywhere, and of the quiet heroism with which, day in, day out, they are doing...it."

    CU Her Majesty the Queen speaking; "'Work' is a word that covers a very wide field. It is hard to define in a single phrase, but if you take it as meaning doing something useful that helps others, then you will see that your work, whatever it may be, is just as valuable, just as much "war-work" as that which is done by the bravest soldier, sailor, or airman who actually meet the enemy in battle." "And have you not met that enemy too? You have endured his bombs; you have helped to put out the fires that he has kindled in our homes: you have tended those he has maimed; brought strength to those he has bereaved; you have tilled our land; you have, in uniform or out of it, given help to our fighting forces, and made for them those munitions without which they would be powerless"

    LV Her Majesty the Queen speaks; "Many there are whose homes have been shattered by the fire of the enemy. The dwellings can be rebuilt, but nothing can restore the family circle if a dear one has gone forever from it."

    CU Her Majesty the Queen speaks:

    "...we women as home-makers have a great part to play, and speaking as I do to-night from my own dearly loved home, I must say that I keenly look forward to a great rebuilding of family life as soon as the war ends."

    CU Her Majesty the Queen speaks:

    "And we also pray that God will bless and guide our people in this country and our great family throughout the Empire, and will lead us forward, united and strong, into the paths of victory and peace."
