Story Card included
It is May 13, 1940, the date of Winston Churchill's first speech to the British Parliament as Prime Minister. With his usual bowtie and belligerent, "bulldog" look, Churchill proclaimed, "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat." Under his leadership and inspiration, the British people persevered in their "ordeal of the most grievous kind," I've included his entire speech and Churchill's signature, as well as his traditional vest and watch fob. My statue is based on the well-known photograph by Karsh of Ottawa. The photographer had snatched the cigar away from Churchill, who responded with this fierce, penetrating stare. I've returned the cigar to this great statesman, who was knighted in 1953, but refused both a dukedom and an earldom. The 1965 commemorative coin honors Churchill's dedication and service to the British people. The other coins reflect the monarchs under whom he served: Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, King Edward VIII, King George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II. Winston Churchill was also an eloquent writer, and in 1953 won the Nobel Prize for literature. His most famous works are the four volume "A History of the English-Speaking Peoples" and a six-volume :The Second World War," his memoirs of World War II. His name remains synonymous with the uncompromising fight for freedom: "You ask, What is our aim? I can answer in one word-Victory...Come, then, let us go forward together with our united strength."
