From the BBC's Dunkirk. 2004.

Hi Graves.. yes its a shame about that. i was trying to draw
the parallel With our own William Standish Vereker . and
maybe someone could have expanded on the family conect-
ion between the two of them.

In spite of our fair use policy, it seems the beeb will not allow
any of there content to be shown, even this small clip for educational
purposes is verboten.. and like iv'e said, we have all paid the
licence fee over and over again. Lord Gort vc in my opinion
was a top bloke and thank god we had people of his calibre
when the chips were really down.. cheers xhosa
