America should have minded her own business and stayed out of the World War. If you hadn’t entered the war the Allies would have made peace with Germany in the Spring of 1917. Had we made peace then there would have been no collapse in Russia followed by Communism, no breakdown in Italy followed by Fascism, and Germany would not have signed the Versailles Treaty, which has enthroned Nazism in Germany. If America had stayed out of the war, all these ‘isms’ wouldn’t to-day be sweeping the continent of Europe and breaking down parliamentary government, and if England had made peace early in 1917, it would have saved over one million British, French, American, and other lives.

Theatre Royal Drury Lane

1914 – 1918

Actors, musicians, writers and workers for the stage
Who have given their lives for their country
Honour to the immortal dead that great white company of shining souls
Who gave their youth that the world might grow old in peace
Their name liveth for evermore
These nobly played their parts these heard the call
For god and king and home they gave their all
Since ye who pass in quest of happy hours
Behold the price at which those hours were bought
Strew here the fragrance of memorial flowers a silent tribute of a grateful thought
