THE KING'S WORD. "We are fighting for a worthy purpose and we shall not lay down our arms until that purpose has been fulfilled." - The King's Speech to Parliament, September 18th, 1914.

LORD KITCHENER'S PLAN. "The Empires with whom we are at war have called to the colours almost their entire male population. The principle we on our part shall observe is this, that while their maximum force undergoes a constant diminution, the reinforcements we prepare shall steadily and increasingly flow out until we have an Army in the field which in numbers not less than in quality will not be unworthy of the power and responsibility of the British empire." - House of Lords, August 25th, 1914.
