Iff) — Great Britain shipped 9,0fl( planes and 3,000 tanks aboard in 1941 at "appalling risk" to the safety of the home front Lore Halifax asserted tonight in answer to accusations that Britain "leaves the fighting to her friends." Some of that material played a vital p.jrt "in the historic defense" of Moscow, the British ambassador said i:i a speech prepared for delivery to '.he American Academy of Political and Social Science. "In 1941, we got 2,000 aircraft from this country but we sent more than 9,000 overseas," he declared. "We imported 200 tanks but we sent aboard 3,000. We have had to take appalling risks with the safety of Great Britain by sending vital war material at critical times to other theaters of war. Gets Hoaosry Degree "I hear it said that Britain sits behind three and a half-million bayonets in her island fortress and leaves the fighting to her friends. "Two million of those soldiers are home guards whose full-time work is in war industries. The other million and a half have got to defend something like 3,000 miles of coasts and 90,000 square miles inside them. "Certainly, I do not think that the idea of the British Isles being over-insured is one that would be accepted by any responsible military opinion." Earlier in the day the ambassador received an honorary degree as Doctor of Canon Law from the Divinity school of the Protestant Episcopal church of Philadelphia.
