Fight on the Beaches

I was watching a documentary on World War II a few weeks ago. It contained loads of footage, even a lot of coloured film. This surprised me, because you don't see that very often. It was quite strange, and even brought it closer. Quite strange. Ofcourse it also featured a bit on Winston Churchill and his famous We Shall Fight on the Beaches speech. However, I realised I only knew the end bit.

"We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."

I deceided to look it up online, soon. But as this always goes, one forgets. And I did for a few weeks. But suddenly I remembered and did a search on Google, and found the speech in its entirety. Check it out at the link in the first paragraph.
