    Background: VISNEWS filmed former British wartime Premier Sir Winston Churchill saying goodbye to his Washington host and hostess, President and Mrs. Eisenhower, May 7.

    Sir Winston was leaving for a one day visit to New York and afterwards a three-day stay with his long-standing friend financier Bernard Baruch, at Manhattan.

    Sir Winston Churchill arrived back in Britain on Monday morning, May 11.

    Many newspapers and commentators looked on this farewell as Churchill's appearance in America. The same was said when Sir Winston went to the Riviera last year. He leans on his stick a little more heavily now, but at 84-years that's to be expected.
