50 Years Since We Said a Last Good-Bye to Winston Churchill

After Sir Winston Churchill died on Jan 24 1965, his body lay in state for three days at Westminster Hall

Mourners queued in wintry weather to pay their respects. It was only the second time that the Monarch had bestowed the honour of a state funeral on a Prime Minister – the first was William Gladstone in 1898.
Here are some choice quotes of Churchill, who makes an appearance in Erik Svane and Thierry Capezzone's Daisy graphic novel Is That Winston Speaking of the Iraq War of 2003?
