Tuesday In a long war statement during which he listed the British dead wounded or missing in Flanders at 30000 and the allied rescued at 335000 Churchill asserted Britain must carry on at all odds until in Gods good time the new world in all its strength and might sets forth to the rescue and liberation the Should England or a part of it be subjugated he said onr empire across the seas armed and guarded by the Brit ish will continue the struggle shall go on to the end the prime minister said We shall fight in France We shall fight on the seas and oceans We with growing confi dence and growing strength in the air fight art the beaches We shall fight on the landing grounds We shall fight in the fields and streets hills We shall never surrender and even it which I do not for a mo ment believe this island or even a part of it is subjugated and starving then our empire across seas armed and guarded by the British fleet will carry on the struggle until in Gods good time the new world and in all its strength and might sets forth to the rescue and liberation of the old He said the allies had suffered a colossal military disaster thai the French army had been weakened and Belgium lost The deliverence of the troops from Dunkirk he said was large ly due to the work of the royal air force guarding the 220 light war ships and 620 other vessels em ployed in the work Churchill

withdrawal a week ago he con tinued I feared it would be my hard lot to announce the great est military disaster in our lone history However he said the allies must be very careful not to as sign to this deliverance the attri butes of a victory Wars are not won by evacua tions the prime minister said He said the British resistance at Calais had enabled the allies to keep the port of Dunkerque open The whole root and core and brain of the British army around which we were to build are to the greater British armies of later yeais ap peared about to perish or to be led into ignominious and starv hig captivity Churchill said He acknowledged that all chan nel ports arc in Hitlers hands and warned that we must expect an other blow will be struck almost immediately at us or at the French
