Empire Day Movement.

EMPIRE DAY, 1956.

Non-Party
Non-Nectarian
Non-Racial

A Message from THE LORD
MILVERTON, G.C.M.G.,
Governor and Commander-
in-Chief, Nigeria.
1948—1947

Last year this Message came to you
from Lord GOWRIE, our late Presi-
dent, who died on 2nd May, shortly
before Empire Day. In him we lost
aman who had spent a full life in
public service of all kinds. He never
spared himself in anything that would
foster or strengthen the unity of the
Commonwealth and, to that end, he
always took the keenest interest in
the young people of all its component
nations.

This year I have been asked,
as one of your Vice-Presidents, to fill
a temporary gap before the appoint-
ment of our new President.

I am particularly pleased that I
should be sending you the Empire
Day Message this year, so recently
made significant by Her Majesty’s
visit to Nigeria. I can readily
visualise the enthusiastic and sponta-
neous welcome given to Her Majesty
everywhere in that vast country
where so many tribal communities
combine to make a miniature Com-
monwealth of their own.

It inspired great happiness to read
of the welcome given by old and
young alike to demonstrate their
loyalty and affection for their Queen
—and ours. This, like her Majesty’s
great journey two years ago to many
of her cther lands, shows how strong
are the ties which unite us in com-
mon support of all that makes for
greater human happiness.

Many of us have memories of other
lands in which we have lived and
worked and on this day, especially
and consciously, our thoughts are of
them and of those friends whose
lives we shared for a while. Within
our scattered family we have our
difficulties and troubles, but this is a
day in our busy lives when we pause
to think of those great and gentle
people of many races whose lives and
work have added, /and will continue

. LXXALYV.

THE LEEWARD IS
GAZETTE.
Bubdlished by Authority, “--

to add, something more to the
honourable record of the Common-
wealth and Empire. We try to cele-
brate this day in many simple and
happy ways.

Our Movement gives annual ex-
pression on the 24th May to our
faith in what the Commonwealth and
Empire stands for—its activities in
the maintenance of peace and good-
will amongst men and the further-
ance of world prosperity.

This voluntary association of
nations is a living experiment in
which all can play a useful part, and
my hope is that many adventurous
young people will make friendships
with others overseas, and so pour the
ever-fresh spirit of adventure and
enterprise into the channels of public
service.

May God grant His blessing to us
all,

MILVERTON.

EMPIRE DAY, 1956.

Non-Party
Non-Nectarian
Non-Racial

A Message from THE LORD
MILVERTON, G.C.M.G.,
Governor and Commander-
in-Chief, Nigeria.
1948—1947

Last year this Message came to you
from Lord GOWRIE, our late Presi-
dent, who died on 2nd May, shortly
before Empire Day. In him we lost
aman who had spent a full life in
public service of all kinds. He never
spared himself in anything that would
foster or strengthen the unity of the
Commonwealth and, to that end, he
always took the keenest interest in
the young people of all its component
nations.

This year I have been asked,
as one of your Vice-Presidents, to fill
a temporary gap before the appoint-
ment of our new President.

I am particularly pleased that I
should be sending you the Empire
Day Message this year, so recently
made significant by Her Majesty’s
visit to Nigeria. I can readily
visualise the enthusiastic and sponta-
neous welcome given to Her Majesty
everywhere in that vast country
where so many tribal communities
combine to make a miniature Com-
monwealth of their own.

It inspired great happiness to read
of the welcome given by old and
young alike to demonstrate their
loyalty and affection for their Queen
—and ours. This, like her Majesty’s
great journey two years ago to many
of her cther lands, shows how strong
are the ties which unite us in com-
mon support of all that makes for
greater human happiness.

Many of us have memories of other
lands in which we have lived and
worked and on this day, especially
and consciously, our thoughts are of
them and of those friends whose
lives we shared for a while. Within
our scattered family we have our
difficulties and troubles, but this is a
day in our busy lives when we pause
to think of those great and gentle
people of many races whose lives and
work have added, /and will continue

. LXXALYV.

THE LEEWARD IS
GAZETTE.
Bubdlished by Authority, “--

to add, something more to the
honourable record of the Common-
wealth and Empire. We try to cele-
brate this day in many simple and
happy ways.

Our Movement gives annual ex-
pression on the 24th May to our
faith in what the Commonwealth and
Empire stands for—its activities in
the maintenance of peace and good-
will amongst men and the further-
ance of world prosperity.

This voluntary association of
nations is a living experiment in
which all can play a useful part, and
my hope is that many adventurous
young people will make friendships
with others overseas, and so pour the
ever-fresh spirit of adventure and
enterprise into the channels of public
service.

May God grant His blessing to us
all,

MILVERTON.
