    The date of Churchill's arrival on the island was 9 January 1953.

    "Churchill stepping down from plane" - it's a Douglas C-118 Liftmaster, (the personal plane of President Truman).

    "Montago Bay" should read Montego Bay.

    "Sir Hugh Foot" - he's the man seen at 00:11 in the white suit.

    The man on right of picture at 00:12 is Alexander Bustamante.
