No. 168
THE following Message for Empire Day, 1953 from the President of the
Empire Day Movement. the Right Honourable the EARL of GowAIF, v.C.,
P.C., G.C.M.G., C,B,, D.S.O., is published for general information.:-
Ref 377/53
May 19th, 1953.


Na few days time our young Queen Elizabeth It will be crowned in
Westminster Abbey. There she will re-affirm the promise he made,
on coming of age, six years ago : "I declare before you a:l that my
whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service....
GOD help me to make good my vow. "
Those who know the Abbey-especially those witnessing the Coronation
-may remember that, in the Henry Vil Chapel nearby, the First Queen
Elizabeth is buried : and will recall the promise she made on the Jay of her
Coronation, three hundred and ninety-four years ago : Be sure that I
will be as good unto you as ever Queen has been to her people...." HER
promise concerned but a little isle set in a silver sea "
There is now another memorial in the Henry VII Chapel the Battle
of Britain window : THAT will remind us the promise of our sec nd Queen
Elizabeth embraces a much greater kingdom, a kin dom that spreads to the
farthermost corners of the world. And tho June.sunshine will pour into
the Abbey, through her beautiful slender windows, lighting up hle memo-
rials of all who have built up the history of this great community 3f nations,
and for which our Queen opens a new chapter.
Thus do we realise the Abbey, once a shrine for England, is now a
shrine for all the people of ihe Commonwealth and Empire ; an. that tle
solemn episodes of the Coronation Service will embrace you all.
Our new Queen Elizabeth will be crowned in the name of n any lands
in which live free peoples countries not even dreamed of in the sixteenth
century, but about which she, as a child, knew when learning h r lessons
in a small house in the park at Windsor. She heard not only o: England
and the old European World : her father and mother h-id tr velled in
almost every country of the Commonwealth, so ttie Prince s learned
from them and to think of those differing lands as part of her lif i too.
There is another point of special interest which I would I ke you to
note-that, unlike the first Elizabeth or Queen Victoria, our Que ii will not
be alone on the day of her crowning. In all our history, she is the first
Queen to be crowned who-on the day of her Coronation-will be supported
by the love of both her husband and her children. No happier sovereign
has ever k nelt before the altar in Westminster Abbey.
My first commission in the Army was granted by Queen Victoria: sub-
sequently I swore fealty to her son Edward VII ; then, later Gecrge V and
George VI. Now with much younger men, I shall swear allegiance, on
behalf of you all, to a gracious and happy young Qu en. In so doing I
shall pray that her happiness may cast its radiance over the live; of all you
children, of all her peoples, wherever they may live.
I send my best wishes-to you, children, especially I envy ycu so much
that you shall grow up and enjoy the privilege of serving such a Queen.
She once said that her own childhood had been all sunshine ". May GOD
grant this blessing to you all, in every land where this Empire Day
Message is read ; and may He keep you safe, always.
