STK-ID 7004

Continuation of Sir Winston Churchill's speech at Parliament (Ottawa, 30/12/1941): other contributions to the war effort are the empire training scheme for airmen, the building of warships and of merchant ships and production of war material and food. He goes on to say that the allies did not start the war and indeed did too much to avoid it, but since there is a war, the British will wage it to the best of the ability and resources, which are as good or better than those of the enemy. Churchill compliments the English race as being a hardy lot who have ranged far and wide over the globe. He states that the English will take everything the axis can dish out and retaliate in kind. "Hitler and his Nazi gang have sown the wind, let them reap the whirlwind". Churchill speaks of his talk with Franklin Delano Roosevelt and states that Roosevelt and himself have resolved to fight on together until the "total and final extirpation of the Hitler tyranny, of the Japanese frenzy and the Mussolini bluff".
