  • Description

    Unissued / Unused material.

    Winston Churchill's speech at Westminster Hall, Fulton. Missouri, America (USA).

    M/S as Winston Churchill walks to podium in university robes, people applaud. M/S as he makes the speech:

    "If the population of the English speaking Commonwealth be added to that of the United States with all that such co-operation implies in the air, on the sea or over the globe and in science and in industry and in moral force there will be no quivering precarious balance of power, to offer its temptation to ambition or adventure. On the contrary there will be an overwhelming assurance of security. (Applause). If we adhere faithfully to the Charter of the United Nations, and walk forward in sedate and sober strength, seeking no one's land or treasures, seeking to lay no arbitrary control upon the thoughts of men. If all British moral and material forces and convictions are joined with your own in fraternal association the high roads of the future will be clear. Not only for us but for all. Not only for our time but for a century to come". (Applause).

    L/S crowd. M/S as they put a sash on President Harry Truman as he receives honorary doctorate. M/S as Churchill has sash put on, he then puts his cap on and stands at podium.
