The Atlantic Charter
HMS Prince of Wales, 10 August 1941: “I chose the hymns myself: “For Those in Peril on the Sea” and “Onward, Christian Soldiers.” We ended with “O God, Our Help in Ages Past”….Every word seemed to stir the heart. It was a great hour to live. Nearly half those who sang were soon to die.” -WSC, 1950
On 14 August 1941, Winston Churchill broadcasted a speech on the BBC discussing the Atlantic Charter.
