    SOUND EFFECTS. CU Lord Provost, T.A. Kerr speaks:- "On me has devolved a pleasant duty - not a duty, not a toil, but the pleasant ... opportunity of presenting this casket which pan down to casket signifies that the Duke of Edinburgh has been made a Freeman or Burgess of the City of Glasgow."



    SV Duke of Edinburgh speaks:- "My Lord Provost, Ladies & Gentlemen: This most generous gift of the freedom of this Great and historic City of Glasgow has given me a very large measure of quite undeserved pleasure." CU...."Several members of the Royal Family in years past have had the privilege of being Freemen of this City, and I was particularly interested to see that the last Duke of Edinburgh was given the Freedom in 1866, and on that occasion he inaugurated, I understand, a statue in George Square. At one time I was rather expecting to be asked to reverse his good work. But I am glad to say that both the statue & I have been spared that awkward possibility."



    CU...."Glasgow is a great City in every sense of the word. Great in size & numbers. If Glasgow has great people she herself will grow in.... greatness, with the pride of her citizens as a strong support to the prosperity and stability of the British Islands and Empire. Thank you very much." (applause)
