Background: At Sir Winston Churchill's London flat ... piles of presents and greetings messages by the sackful on Sir Winston's 86th Birthday, Nov. 30th.
Because of his recent fall, injuring his back, Sir Winston got up only for a quiet family lunch. He was in good spirits and though he was not at the House of Commons to received the customary ovation on his birthday, both sides of the House echoed the good wishes for a speedy recovery received in the message from throughout the world.
Among the gifts was a 100lb. cake bearing the 'Horn of Plenty' and iced emblems of Sir Winston's life .. his taste for liqueurs, his Novel Prize award, his cigars and historical writings.
