On nOveM­beR 4, 1954, i was de­mo­bilised af­ter com­plet­ing my two years’ na­tional Ser­vice. The fol­low­ing day, when the news be­came pub­lic, peo­ple came out onto the streets, lit bon­fires and let off fire­works — a touch­ing trib­ute which has per­sisted right up to the present day. This year, 2019, will be the 65th an­niver­sary of that amaz­ing day, and i am mak­ing a na­tion­wide ap­peal for re­straint. i want to make it clear that there is no need for ex­tra ex­u­ber­ance or ex­trav­a­gance as the usual dis­plays have al­ways been per­fectly ad­e­quate and al­ways greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. May i take this op­por­tu­nity to thank ev­ery­one for their sup­port over these past years.
