  • Description

    No title - Churchill speaks at County Hall.


    L/S of the banquet in the County Hall, on the platform are Winston Churchill and Herbert Morrison. Various shots of 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 as to whether conventions should be entered into to stop the bombing of all cities an 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. We will have no truce or parley with you, or the grisly gang who work your wicked will. You do your worst and we will do our best." Everyone applauds and gives him a standing ovation whilst he sits down.
