EMPIRE DAY MESSAGE

From

THE RT. HON. THE EARL OF GOWRIE,
V.C., P.C., G.C.M.G., C.B., D.S.O.,
President.


Our concept of the British Empire
has greatly changed since the celebra-
tion of an annual Empire Day was
first proposed, 1902, by the 12th Earl
of Meath, our founder.

For many, too many years we, at
home, have taken the Colonial depen-
dencies for granted: we knew vaguely
of their existence but few troubled to
find out much about them, few even
knew accurately their geographical
position.

But, in the last two decades, there
has been a real change of attitude -
a change stimulated by this recent war
and the ensuing economic crisis. A
far more intelligent interest is now
taken in the Colonies; and this was
fully proved, if proof were necessary,
-by the success of the Colonial Month
< organisedd by the Colonial Office dur-
\ing the summer of 1949) when the


size of the crowds who thronged the
exhibition exceeded all expectations.
People now know where these terri-
tories lie, and how each differs from
the other climatically, racially, econo-
mically. Morever, we are beginning
to understand that the well being
of the Commonwealth and Empire
depends as much on the health and
prosperity of each as on the co-opera-
tion of all the partners that make up
this wonderful chain of English-speak-
ing peoples. Furthermore, all fully
realise that the maintenance and
development of this partnership is a
truly stabilising influence in a sorely
troubled world and an honest attempt
to lead a better way of life for all
mankind.

And, as you know, various factors
have forged strong personal links; on
the one- hand, troops from Britain
who served overseas during the war
ma-de friends, and have thus learnt, at
first hand of life and conditions
abroad; on the other hand, soldiers,
visitors and students in increasing
numbers have come from the Domin-
ions and Colonies to see and learn
from the Mother Country-the heart


of this unique family of

The story of that fa
growth and developers
thralling one; for it is ai
experiment in harmo
made by peoples of man
different backgrounds ar
stages of civilisation.

Nor have we reach(
chapters. You who ha

integrity, in writing th(

It is fitting-indeed it
