The World at Home ABC, Page 10


B for Briton. Though his home is in little isles set in a northern sea, you will
find him in every part of the world, for he is never so much at home as when he is
abroad. He is strong and hardy, dogged and brave, just and generous, and a lover
of fair play. He belongs to a nation of sailors, and wherever a ship can sail,
there you will find the British flag fluttering in the breeze. Every briton is
proud of the Royal Navy. To her sailors Britain owes her colonies and foreign
possessions, which cover one-fifth of all the land on the globe, and include
one-fourth of the world’s inhabitants. The British army, though not large, is
“ready to go anywhere and do anything.” Rule, Britannia!
