Photo suite 173 -- at Churchill's grave

During our recent trip to Europe we visited Winston Churchill's grave -- not in Westminster Abbey or any other majestic venue, but in the tiny churchyard at Bladon.  The contrast between the greatness of the man and the calm and modest venue was profound and moving.

PS  My late father was a huge fan of Churchill, since the two of them collaborated in winning World War 2.  Today I celebrate not only winning World War 2 but my parents' wedding anniversary, from 1941.  Here's to Dad and Mom, and all the other dads and moms who helped Churchill win the war.

  1. Dear Kathy,
    I, too, am a Churchill fan. Have you read "The Churchill Factor" by Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London? Very interesting analysis of Churchill's character, psychology, and personality, and how he saved Britain and the rest of the world from Hitler. We also visited his bunker in London, and a small part of the Churchill museum there, which was fascinating.
