Ernest Bevin had many of the strongest characteristics of the English race. His manliness, his common sense, his rough simplicity, sturdiness and kind heart, easy geniality and generosity, all are qualities which we who live in the southern part of this famous island regard with admiration.
He is a powerful fellow, with a bull neck and a huge voice - a born leader...if there is trouble, mark my words! You will hear more of Bevin!Ernest Bevin
Some of us do not think that passports are the same since they were introduced by the words, "We, Ernest Bevin".Ernest Bevin
