"On this glorious occasion of the splendid defeat" is spoken by [[Anthony Newley]] and comes from the film [[Cockleshell Heroes]].<br>
In answer to an interview question, Morrissey says about the film:<br>
"On "[[Maladjusted (song)|Maladjusted]]" you have sampled a dialogue from a film called "Cockleshell Heroes".
- Oh, it's just one of those crisp British films that you've probably seen at four o'clock on a rainy Sunday on a channel you never usually watch. It's actually not a very good movie although it is written by Bryan Forbes. It's just a masculine war movie where everyone's a marine soldier and everybody's happy all the time and every officer has a stiff upper lip. They go to war, to Bourdeaux, and return with a couple of limbs missing but they are still as jovial as ever. It's just one of those old films that gives us wonderful insight to merry old England."
