More information from the web about Neville Chamberlain
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
September 1938 after signing the Munich Pact with Hitler
"We, the German Führer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have
had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question
of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries
and for Europe.
"We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval
Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war
with one another again."
Wild cheers erupted, the crowd reiterating, reverberating the last syllables
of the Prime Minister's statement. He continued.
"We are resolved that the
method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other
questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to
continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference, and thus to
contribute to assure the peace of Europe."
Later at 10 Downing Street, he added,
"My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime
Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is
peace for our time... Go home and get a nice quiet sleep."
