Havelock Wilson, Member of parliament, and President of the National Seamen's and Firemen's Union, argues against pacificism and calls for "Peace with Victory," at a public meeting in Trafalgar Square, London, England, during World War 1. He stands near statue of lion at base of Nelson's Column and addresses a seated audience of men and women. In change of scene, Mr. Wilson poses, using two canes for support, as he speaks in front of a building. Men hold up a sign reading: "Sailors and Soldiers, Don't forget to declare yourselves in favour of the Seamen's Boycott of the Huns." (The Seamen pledged to boycott German maritime activities, following the war as reprisal for German attacks during the war.) Closeup of Havelock Wilson.
