Re: Yorkshire dressmaker

I have tried to call Deborah Lough during her office hours and Chimera and it always cuts to voice mail. I would prefer to speak to the dress maker before I place an order. Can anyone recommend other Yorkshire dressmakers please?

Hitlers 1940 invasion speech

Iam writing an article about Operation Sealion and I recall that Hitler delivered a speech to the effect that he was about to invade Britain.

Does anyone know when Hitler delivered this speech and recisely what he said?
