In thinking about the events in France recently:

"This is no war of chieftains or of princes, of dynasties or national ambition; it is a war of peoples and of causes.

"There are vast numbers, not only in this island but in every land, who will render faithful service in this war but whose names will never be known, whose deeds will never be recorded.

"This is a war of the Unknown Warriors; but let all strive without failing in faith or in duty, and the dark curse of Terrorism will be lifted from our age."

Adapted from Winston Churchill BBC Broadcast, London, 14th July 1940
