    SOUND EFFECTS.



    SV Duke of Edinburgh speaks:-



    "First of all may I say how pleased & honoured I am to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh on this its 450th anniversary.



    CU ... And perhaps in the same breath I ought to give an immediate undertaking not to practice the craft of surgery." (laughter) ... I assure you mine are quite safe. (laughter)



    SCU Duke of Edinburgh continues:-



    "And I only hope that those people who quite rightly believe that surgery's more than a craft, will forgive me that I look at it still from the point of view of the patient. If anyone is going to tinker about with my insides I would rather that he were an accomplished craftsman than an experimental scientist." (laughter)



    CU ... "And now ladies & gentlemen, in recognition of past services and in appreciation of present efforts and in confidence of future successes, I give you the toast - The craft of surgery, coupled with the name, the President of the College, Professor M. The craft of Surgery." (applause)



    Royalty; Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten) (b. 1921), Education and Training; Personalities - Performers; Medicine and Health; Great Britain
