Winnie the Churchill by wbd Winnie the Churchill by wbd
And over the wireless, the tinny voice continued,

"... We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again"

With that, Winnie let out a sigh, as he slumped in his chair near the Marconi set. He knew what was to come.

"Oh... bother."

Art Notes:

Well, Winnie was a nickname of Winston Churchill, too.

The pose and attire were inspired by this picture of Churchill:

But wouldn't Churchill use a more elevated tone for his request?

Well done - reminds me of a story one of my Dad's old Army buddies told of Winnie, the south coast of England in around 41-42 and a German fighter plane - needless to say only one person did not dive for cover

That's a neat story, thanks for relaying it! I think it's important for these stories to be told- they help us understand our history, especially as we move further and further away from the time when it happened.

The best part was that as my Dad's mate was firing away with his Bren gun at the plane, Winnie was yelling and stamping his feet, tell the pilot to get off English soil (the polite version I am sure)
