Mr Churchill visited Swansea

11 April 1941. MR. CHURCHILL VISITED SWANSEA during his tour of bombed areas in South Wales and Bristol. I go about the country said the Premier, whenever I can escape from my duty at headquarters, and I see the damage done by the Luftwaffe's attacks, but I also see, side by side with the devastation and amid the ruins, glad, confident, bright and smiling eyes. I see the spirit of an unconquerable people.
