Queen thanks veterans for 'heroism, courage and sacrifice'
The Queen continues thanking veterans: "In a broadcast to the nation at that time, my father King George VI said: 'What is demanded from us all is something more than courage and endurance. We need a revival of spirit. A new unconquerable resolve.'
"That is exactly what those brave men brought to the battle, as the fate of the world depended on their success.
"Many of them would never return, and the heroism, courage and sacrifice of those who lost their lives will never be forgotten.
"It is with humility and pleasure, on behalf of the entire country, indeed the whole free world, that I say to you all, thank you."
