  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown. 1937?

    Sound track only -

    King George VI gives his traditional Christmas time speech to the nation in 1937. He is really taking his time over the delivery - it illustrates his speech impediment, although he doesn't stutter or stammer. He talks of the past year and the promises made at the Coronation. He talks of making the Christmas message the keystone of people's daily lives.
