Restoration of London

Recommended Posts

People had been moving back into London for months when it became apparent it was nearly rebuilt and a large parade was organised for the completion of the task. The Queen Victoria Memorial outside Buckingham Palace had been replaced with a war memorial to those who died in the attacks, Nelsons Column replaced with Joonas column, Britains highest celebrated Commander and Tower Bridge had been beautifully restored. The city had been rebuilt in the exact image it had been before the bombings, with a few changes of course, several new skyscrapers had been constructed and almost every important building, including the Palace had been made out of reinforced concrete with outer layours of Brick for the Aethetic look of perfection.

First the Coldstream and Grenadier Guards held a parade at Chelsea Barracks alongside the Lifeguards and Blues n Royals before making their way to Buckingham Palace. It was the greatest show of force in London since before the war, but it wasnt intended to intimidate, but merely to uphold tradition and pride.

When they arrived at the Palance, flanked by what was estimated by the Government to be roughly 500,000 people alone at the Mall, another 300,000 people in Hyde park and millions of people across the UK.

There would be no grand speech, simply a slightly altered quote from Winston Churchill as the Royal Party gathered on the Balcony of the Palace. Arthur Twaites stepped forward to the waiting microphone.

"We may allow ourselves a brief period of rejoicing; but let us not forget for a moment the toil and efforts that lie ahead. Ireland, with all her treachery and greed, remains unsubdued. The injury she has inflicted on Great Britain, Germany, and other countries, and her detestable cruelties, call for justice and retribution. We must now devote all our strength and resources to the completion of our task, both at home and abroad. Advance, Britannia! Long live the cause of freedom! God save the King!"

Met with a deafening applause from the crowds, the Royal Family bowed before their people and stood waving and looking over the subjects.
