It has continued to move with the times and if new weapons are levelled against it in the future, I am confident that it will find the answer to these as well. Our ships are the finest in the world. But ships alone do not make a Navy.

In the old days we spoke of ships of oak and hearts of oak. Nowadays our ships are of steel; and it is not too much to say that with the staunchness of our sailors has evolved in a like manner with their ships. Nothing but iron courage and nerves of steel could have withstood the naval warfare of the last war. Our Navy is a force of which we can be more justly proud to-day than ever before.

I ask you, Ladies and Gentlemen, to drink to the health of the Royal Navy, and I couple with the toast the name of that great sailor 6. REPLY TO THE TOAST OF THE ROYAL NAVY. Example Speech Mr.

Chairman, Gentlemen-I must apologise for standing up and breaking one of the naval traditions which has just been warmly praised. I have been reminded that the Service to which I have the honour to belong is famous for its silence; and such a compliment deserves a more appropriate reply than a speech. Nor, indeed, is there anything I can say, beyond expressing my thanks for the most cordial way in which you have received this toast. I would add only this: service in the British Navy is a great privilege as well as a responsibility.

In playing our part in the defence of the country we have always known that we have had the trust and confidence of the people behind us. This means a lot to us; and come what may, I promise you that we shall continue to try to be worthy of this trust.
