Festive Greetings to all Heritage and Destiny subscribers and supporters

On behalf of Peter Rushton and myself, we wish you all the very best for the festive season, whether you celebrate Christmas, the Winter Solstice or Yule. We are all members of a great family of racial nationalist brothers and sisters, and the principles that unite us at this sacred time of year are much more important than any minor differences that we may have.

Our Movement has had a pretty rough year, due to Covid and Brexit, and sadly all indications are that 2021 may be even worse. We must brace ourselves for the struggle ahead. In addition to the increased attacks on this website by left-wing hackers (who BTW have failed to bring us down since we switched server), we should expect more attacks from the enemies of Free Speech, who wish to kick us off all our social-media platforms.

But whatever comes to pass, please be assured that Heritage and Destiny magazine, will keep publishing as a hard copy, and our website will keep going online as long as our host keeps us up. We are not going anywhere, and we will adapt to continue our struggle in one form or another, no matter what obstacles our enemies throw in our path.

The next issue of Heritage and Destiny will be our 100th, and will (we hope) be printed in early January. It’s looking like it will be a bumper 40-page (compared to to the normal 24-page) issue to celebrate our anniversary, so please make sure you get a copy – and extra copies for nationalist friends.

If you are not already a subscriber please email us at heritageanddestiny@yahoo.com and we will send you a sample copy and subscription form.

And as we prepare our Traditional Dinners tomorrow, let us remember the Christmas Truce of the First World War. This truce started late on Christmas Eve 1914, when men of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) heard German troops in the trenches opposite them singing carols and patriotic songs and saw lanterns and small fir trees along their trenches. Messages began to be shouted between the trenches.

The following day, English and German Saxon soldiers met in no man’s land and exchanged gifts, took photographs and some played impromptu games of football. They also buried casualties and repaired trenches and dugouts. After Boxing Day, meetings in no man’s land dwindled out.

The truce was not observed everywhere along the Western Front. Elsewhere the fighting continued and casualties did occur on Christmas Day. Some British officers were unhappy at the truce and worried that it would undermine the fighting spirit of the Tommys to want to kill their fellow Saxons.

After 1914, the British High Command – under instructions from the usual suspects – tried to prevent any truces on a similar scale happening again, Despite this, there were some isolated incidents of Saxon soldiers holding brief truces later in the war, and not only at Christmas.

In what was known as the ‘Live and Let Live’ system, in quiet sectors of the front line, brief pauses in the hostilities were sometimes tacitly agreed, allowing both sides to repair their trenches or gather their dead.

In 1934 a Munich film studio made what became one of the most popular films of 1930s Germany – Stoßtrupp 1917 (‘Shock Troop 1917’). The closing scene of this film is set on Christmas Eve 1917 on the Western Front – three years after the 1914 Truce. This was to be the last Christmas of the war.

As can be seen in a restored online version of the film (where the final scene begins at 1h20m50s), the German filmmakers sought to capture a spirit of Anglo-German reconciliation. Click here to view the film online.

Let Saxon never kill fellow Saxon again, for the benefit of the capitalist masters. No More Brothers Wars.

I wish each and every one of you, and your families and loved ones, a happy and prosperous New Year.

As the slogan on our magazine masthead says – “Stand Men of the West, Today is the day we fight!”
