NOTE: The women of Great Britain will never forget what Belgium has done for all that women hold most dear.

In the days to come mothers will tell their children how a small but great-souled nation fought to the death against overwhelming odds and sacrificed all things to save the world from an intolerable tyranny.

The story of the Belgian people’s defense of freedom will inspire countless generations yet unborn.

NOTE AUTHOR: Emmeline Pankhurst, in “King Albert’s Book.”
