As Roosevelt was a President and Churchill was only a Prime Minister, Churchill had to hand over a letter of introduction from King George VI. General Dill (at the rank of Field Marshall) died in Washington in 1944. Admiral of the Fleet Pound died in London 1943. The Royal Navy Captain was John Leach who was lost with the ship 10 Dec 1941 of Malaya. His son Henry Leach was First Sea Lord during Falklands war in 1982. The ships multi-coloured painted colour scheme is a early to mid war pattern. By the late war the paint pattern was more uniform.
