Commonwealth Day, 1959.

.A Message for the first World
Wide Celebration of

COMMONWEALTH DAY

From the PRESIDENT

Air Marshal Sir Victor Goddard,
K.C.B., C.B.E., M.A.

OF THE COMMONWEALTH DAY
MOVEMENT

In hundreds of countries, territories
4and Islands of the Commonwealth
and in many places in other lands the
twenty-fourth of May is now, and for
the first time, to be called Common-
-wealth day.
Let us all wish each other many
J-appy Returns of the Day!-for it
really is a birthday: a day which has
: deep m)elaniil about the new birth
*of peoples and nations.
Man's progress towards awareness
,of brotherhood has been going on,
going ba:-k, and going on again for
thousands of years. But never before
has there been so great a world-wide
groupp of such different nations so
freely associated in agreement to


honour one simple, human idea-
their common well-being in a kind of
brotherhood.

Adventurously the seed of the idea
was planted as Empire. But now,
behold, it is trees of Commonwealth
that have grown, each of its own
kind according to its own nature and
climate, each flowering and fruiting
according to its own character.

With every new example of indi-
pendent nationhood there springs, or
wanes and springs again an awareness
of a wider unity-a unity that is re-
vealed in kindly brilliance by the
QUEEN and members of her own fami-
ly on their travels through many
lands during this year of Common
Wealth; an awareness of a spiritual
flame kindled as much by their
allegiance and service to us as by
ours to them
R.V. GODDARD.

information that the date appointed
