WINSTON CHURCHILL PICTURES:
“It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time.”
-Winston Churchill, 1945
Unlike many of his contemporaries, Churchill recognized the dangers of German rearmament after their defeat in the First World War. He was also a vehement opponent of Communism and remained so even throughout Britain’s alliance with the Soviet Union in World War 2.

Winston Churchill in a famous photo from 1940 in a pin-stripe suit and bowler hat, with a cigar and a tommy gun! This photo was also used on German propaganda leaflets with the caption "Wanted - for incitement to Murder".
A little less Hollywood, a little more realistic - Churchill was
inspecting the troops when he tried out the gun.
Churchill made famous the forward "V" hand signal, but as he
proves here he was also capable of doing it the other way around!
