Winston Churchill Bust hand made in Bath by the Modern Souvenir Company
Churchill was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a non-academic historian, a writer and an artist. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 for his lifetime body of work. In 1963, he was the first of only eight people to be made an honorary citizen of the United States. In his Speech to the House of Commons may 13th 1940 he uttered the immortal words - "...we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be...we shall never surrender."
Churchill is on of the most photographed, sculpted, painted and drawn figures in modern history. The objects around the base are reminiscent of objects from World War II including a gas mask, military hat, a soldiers helmet, Spitfire, Churchill's bowler hat, a Hurricane and a trowel. The etch around the base reads - "WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER"
