She is the head of -a .world wide Empire, wiose frontiers are sea fron- roads are sea roads and whose trade is sea trade. As regards Great Britain herself she is 'precise- ly as dependent upon sea borne food and supplies of all sorts as a light house. Every other great nation is wholly o? nearly sdf supporting. The trade routes of- the empire are the arteries for its life blood and the navy 'is the coat of mail that covers the j i arteries. "Supremacy at sea is necessary to a Great Britain' alone among the na- tions, becuse upon safety at sea de- pends her life. The two, power stand- 'urd has gone and it can only be re- covered with help of overseas nations but they are only beginning and it will be five years at least before they can contribute to the naval strength of the empire."
