Peace for our time

Peace for our time

After a meeting in München with Adolf Hitler the british premier Chamberlain landed at Heston Aerodrome on 30 September 1938, and spoke to the crowds there:

 
- The settlement of the Czechoslovakian problem, which has now been achieved is, in my view, only the prelude to a larger settlement in which all Europe may find peace. This morning I had another talk with the German Chancellor, Herr Hitler, and here is the paper which bears his name upon it as well as mine. Some of you, perhaps, have already heard what it contains but I would just like to read it to you: ' ... 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.'
 
Many has since laughed over those words, as never before has words had less meaning.
