On behalf of Her Majesty, the Queen-Empress, Victoria and her government, I would like to wish all Ladies and Gentlemen players of our games a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
It has been a challenging year for the many loyal companies across the globe, protecting the Empire from enemies and fiends both within and without. We shall remember each brave figure who has fallen doing their duty and raise a toast to their memory.
For those of you reading this message who would wish us harm in the year to come, enjoy these short festivities. For, come the new year, Lord Curr shall come knocking on your door to re-educate you as to the rectitude of imperial British rule.
