The Queen made the following taped statement to her people: "As a

nation, we are rightly proud of our armed forces. That pride has

been fully justified by their conduct in the Gulf war so far. As

they, with our allies, face a fresh and yet sterner challenge, I hope

that we can unite, and pray that their success will be as swift as it

is certain and that it may be achieved with as small a cost in human

life and suffering as possible. Then may the true reward of their

courage be granted- a just and lasting peace." close
