State of the Nation Speech by John Major

Many thanks to Carmen for first drawing my attention to this speech.

In my opinion, and that of many national commentators, this is not only a good speech but an important one. You do not need to be a Conservative or a supporter of John Major to recognise that his words are of great significance, which I believe will be quoted time and time again by historians in the future.

Dear William


Please find attached an extract from a letter my wife’s uncle wrote to her father in September 1945. They were both serving in New Guinea at the time. He was an army Sargeant and my father in law a bomber pilot. The extract clearly evidences that the Japanese are their Australian prisoners. Gruesome but true. I’m happy if you want to include in your talk. Regards. Laurence Olins
