Four days to go!

“Of all men in the Empire my friend Sir Robert foresaw the danger that now faces us. If we do not prevail then Europe will fall to darkness, and with it both the Empire and the world. Now is the time we must stand firm and call upon that Christian faith and resolve that has made us the most powerful amongst the civilised nations. His sacrifice must be a lesson to us all.
“His noble defence of Her Majesty when all others had fled will place him in the pantheon of true British heroes. Let the call ‘For Delamere!’ ring across the Empire!”
General Sir Albert Alexander KCMG,
the Eulogy for Lord Robert Delamere,
St Paul’s Cathedral, London, 18 August 1895
