Eighty years on. 14th November 1939


The Polish Government in Exile, led by General Sikorski, moved from Paris to London.

Hitler rejected the offer of mediation from Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands and King Leopold of the Belgians.  This offer had already been rejected by Winston Churchill in his speech two days previously (despite that he had no authority to speak for the British Government at this date).

The Franco-British alliance agreed to set up defensive lines on the River Dyle in Belgium if Germany were to attack.
