'History will be kind to me for I intend to write it' (Haworth 40s weekend)


"We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and the oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."  Sir Winston Churchill

No prizes for guessing who this distinguished gentleman is.... but I guess no 1940s tribute would be complete without Mr Churchill.

  3. Good effort with the togs, but surely a bit too svelte to be Winston?

  5. Looks like a fantastic weekend -- except for the crowds. Perhaps I nee to watch "Dad's Army."
