  • Amazing, that I am the first person to post a comment here. That I feel totally inadequate to be able to say something that is comparable to this mans life, well, I won't even try. But if I were able to meet, Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, DL, FRS, RA , then, I would like to say... Sir. It is my Honour to meet you. That this man has made mistakes, is human. That this man arose, and stirred those around him, to defeat an enemy that was about to................. as I said... Sir. It is my Honour to meet you.

  • Were I to meet him, I would simply say 'Sir, thank you for my life'. For without his leadership during World War II, I might never have been born six years after the end of that war.

    I remember watching his funeral live as a 14-year-old boy and being touch by it all. We shall never see its like again: nor his. The commentator was right when he compared Sir Winston as Mount Everest to rolling hills.

  • On the 50th anniversary of the state funeral, thanks for making this available. (I live in France and can't get the full BBC version in B&W.) It's a historic recording of a historic event. I was most moved by seeing the cranes dipping as the boat carrying Churchill's body sets off for Waterloo. It's moving both because it's magically theatrical to see these massive beasts all move slowly in synch. like that (brilliantly prepared) but also because all those cranes have now disappeared and it's a reminder how much London and the UK has changed in the last 50 years.

    I was only a small child back in 1965 and only wish I'd been just that bit older to appreciate what an extraordinarily important event I was living through. I do, though, have vivid memories of driving through northern France in the summer of 1965 past children of a similar age to me weho made V signs at us as they saw the GB stickers.
