    LV Churchill speaking "I have no doubt whatever as I said to the Forces, the Civil Defence Forces in Hyde Park this morning, that the behaviour of the British people in this trial gained them conquests in the mind and spirit and sympathy of the United States of America which swept into an ignominious corner all the vilest strokes of Goebbel's propaganda and when, after the enemy wearied of his attack upon the capital and turned to other parts of the country it is no extravagance of speech to say that many of us in our hearts felt anxiety lest the weight of attack concentrated on those smaller organisms would prove more effective than when directed upon London."



    SV of Mr. Churchill speaking. "However, the staunchness and vigour of London was fully matched by the splendid behaviour of our ports and cities (cheers) when they in turn received the full violence of the enemy's assault.



    SV Mr. Churchill speaking "We ask no favours of the enemy. WE seek from them no compunction. On the contrary, if tonight the people of London were asked to cast their vote whether a convention should be entered into to stop the bombing of all cities, the overwhelming majority would cry: 'No, we will mete out to the Germans the measure, and more than the measure, that they have meted out to us." (Applause) LV of Churchill speaking "We will have no truce or parley with you or the grizzley gang who work your wicked will. (Applause.) You do your worst and we will do our best (Long and prolonged cheers)

    SOUND EFFECTS.SUMMARY OF MR. CHURCHILL SPEECH.Mr. Churchill repeated what he had said to the Forces in the morning that he had no doubt that the behaviour of the British people had gained them the full sympathy of the U.S.A. which superseded Goebbel's propaganda.



    After the attacks on London had ceased people were anxious as to the effect they would have on other parts of the country. However, they stood up to it. We ask no favours of the enemy, we seek no compunction. If a vote were taken, the result would show that the people wished to endure much but to give more.



    Personalities - Politicians; Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874-1965)
