That The Heavy Losses Caused Us By The War Were Borne Without A Murmur Is Surely Evidence Enough How Deep Was The Conviction Of The Nation That The War Was Not Only Just But Essential - That The Possession Of South Africa And The Unity Of The Empire Were At Stake.

Entailed such tremendous sacrifices upon their people without adequate cause, is it not certain that, the task once done, an explosion of rage from the deceived and the bereaved would have driven them for ever from public life? Among high and low, in England, in Scotland, in Ireland, in the great Colonies, how many high hopes had been crushed, how often the soldier son had gone forth and never returned, or come back maimed and stricken in the pride of his youth. Everywhere was the voice of pity and sorrow, but nowhere that of reproach. The deepest instincts of the nation told it that it must fight and win, or for ever abdicate its position in the world. Through dark days which brought out the virtues of our race as nothing has done in our generation, we struggled grimly on until the light had fully broken once again.
