I can answer in one word. VICTORY. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terror. Victory however long and hard the road may be.
For without victory there is no survival. Let that be realized. No survival for the British Empire. No survival for the urge and impulse for the ages – that all of mankind would move towards its goal.
Come then, let us go forward together, with our united strength…
