Tyranny is our foe
whatever trappings or disguise it wears,
whatever language it speaks,
be it external or internal,
we must forever be on our guard,
ever mobilised,
ever vigilant,
always ready to spring at its throat.

Winston Churchill

September 6th 1943

A Prayer of THANKSGIVING at the end and as the Public leave, a Collection for the CHURCHILL MEMORIAL FUND.

The Cathedral to be lit with candles - each candle to represent so many who lost their lives in the wars of this century.

From the end of the concert to midnight there be a war time blackout to let children see just how dark the blackout was. There should be an Air Raid sirens. Old wartime search lights should then scan the sky and catch the Cathedral's Cross and bombers drone overhead. The City of London should have 'explosions' and buildings appear to have been bombed by setting them 'ablaze' by means of copious smoke and son-et-luminaire. Upon the stroke of mid-night the All Clear should sound and then after a short pause, all the City of London Church Bells should ring joyously and a there be a great Fire Work display.
