Making the all-red route starting from the east of Canada and going right across the continent, and then crossing down to Australia, India, Africa, and New Zealand. Now possible because there is a chain of theatres stretched from one end of Canada to the other. Encouraging actors in England to make the journey. The success of the current tour. Asking ourselves how this Empire stands: firmer and wider than ever before. Looking back to see four separate efforts to destroy the Empire, each one followed by a period of expansion. Remembering the day in Plymouth when the first Canadian contingent arrived. A story about a certain body of frontiersmen, serving to show the loyalty and courage which emanates from some of the old Lion's "pups." Remaining vigilant to danger. The Canadian characteristic of living in the future. The speaker concludes with the recitation of "A Chant of Love For England."
