"This is the first occasion on
which it has fallen to me as
Minister of Transport and Civil

to all those members of the Mer-
chant Navy who are spending
Christmas overseas.

Many of us at home know from
experience what it means to spend
Christmas far from our homes and
families. Nothing can quite make
up for that. But we are glad to
know that though duty takes you
away at this time you will be
celebrating the festival in the
traditional way among good friends
to whom we offer our warm thanks
for all they have done and are
doing for the welfare of our sea-
farers.

We can look back on the past
twelve months with quiet satisfac-
tion for the year has been one of
solid national achievement in which
the Merchant Navy has played a
great part. We are indeed grateful
to you.

I wish you all a happy Christmas
and a prosperous New Year,

From the Secretary of State for the
Colonies.

"I join with the Minister of
Transport and Civil Aviation in
expressing my thanks to all those
associated with the welfare of
Merchant Seamen. To them and
to all seamen from the Colonies
I send my best wishes and greet-
ings for Christmas and the New
Year."
