British Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery exits train car, approaches / MS SOT: 'On this day of victory in Europe, I feel I would like to speak to all who have served and fought with me during the last few years. What I have to say is very simple and quite short. I would ask you all to remember those of our comrades who fell in the struggle. They gave their lives that others might have freedom, and no man can do more than that. I believe that He would say to each one of them 'well done, thou good and faithful servant'' / closer SOT: 'Let us never forget what we owe to our Russian and American allies. This great Allied team has achieved much in war. May it achieve even more in peace' / CU SOT: 'It has been a privilege and an honor to command this great British Empire team in western Europe. few commanders have had such loyal service as you have given me. I thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart. Good luck to each one of you, wherever you may be'
