  • Battlehymne of the Republic Dignitärerna Kyrkogården Bladon (Blenheim Castle) Kranarna i Docklands Churchill's funeral 'ten years in planning' Published Date:  24 January 2005 WHEN Sir Winston Churchill died 40 years ago today, more than a decade had gone into planning his State funeral, it was revealed today. The wartime leader, who inspired a nation in its darkest hour, was laid to rest on January 30, 1965, in the Oxfordshire village of Bladon following a funeral service at St Paul’s Cathedral.  The papers detailing the years of planning for the event - affectionately codenamed Operation Hope Not - are still preserved at the National Archives in Kew, south-west London.  They show how the Queen herself took a close interest in the arrangements.  In 1953, after Churchill - then in his second term as Prime Minister - suffered a heart attack, the Queen let it be known that when the final moment came he should be commemorated in suitable fashion.

The wartime leader, who inspired a nation in its darkest hour, was laid to rest on January 30, 1965, in the Oxfordshire village of Bladon following a funeral service at St Paul’s Cathedral.  The papers detailing the years of planning for the event - affectionately codenamed Operation Hope Not - are still preserved at the National Archives in Kew, south-west London.  They show how the Queen herself took a close interest in the arrangements.  In 1953, after Churchill - then in his second term as Prime Minister - suffered a heart attack, the Queen let it be known that when the final moment came he should be commemorated in suitable fashion. Two days later, Churchill's coffin, draped with the Union Jack, was taken from his last home at Hyde Park Gate to Westminster Hall to lie in state where 321,000 people passed by the catafalque to pay him tribute. It was the first time since Gladstone in 1898, that any non-royal person had been so honoured. Gladstone's state funeral was preceded by that of the Duke of Wellington's in 1852. Churchill's funeral, like that of Wellington's but not Gladstone's, was in St. Paul's Cathedral, not Westminster Abbey. The Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, had arranged, as a parliamentary tribute to their old colleague, that in place of the soldiers mounting guard around the coffin, the three party leaders - the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, the leader of the Liberal Party and the Speaker of the House of Commons - would mount guard for a short period at the corners of the catafalque.

  • Pamela Plowden an early love of Churchill’s told Eddie Marsh, Churchill’s first Private Secretary A Churchill Society Press Statement. December 1st 2003. Daily Telegraph. Churchill letters to his first love go up for sale. By John Shaw (Filed: 24/11/2003)   More than 40 personal and affectionate letters written by Winston Churchill to Pamela Plowden, the first great love of his life, are to be sold at Christie's, South Kensington, on Dec 2. They range from his first efforts to engage her interest when he was a 21-year-old officer in India to the mellow affection of old age, recalling in 1950 that he had proposed to her exactly 50 years before. But Pamela, whose father was the governor of Bengal and acting viceroy of India, married the second Lord Lytton, of Knebworth House, Herts. Nicholas Woodhouse of Wadham College, Oxford, OX1 3PN, writes to us to say John Shaw is in error in that I notice in his DT aricle on my grandmother, Pamela Plowden, he writes: "But Pamela, whose father was the governor of Bengal and acting viceroy of India, married the second Lord Lytton, of Knebworth House, Herts." In fact her father was head of police in Assam. It was Lord Lytton himself, my grandfather, who was Governor of Bengal). Churchill also married another but his friendship with Pamela remained constant throughout the years. For at least three years, she was the most important person in his life. He wrote constantly. The hand-written letters from various addresses are being sold individually. The estimates range from £1,000 to £25,000-£35,000. When he first met her at a polo match in India in 1896, it was love at first sight. "She is," he wrote to his mother, "the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. We are going try and do the city of Hyderabad together - on an elephant." The relationship in its early years was hampered partly by his lack of income and clear prospects, whereas she was the daughter of a leading official in India. But by the time of his Boer War excursion as a correspondent, they were very close. The notes range from one at the front - "I am really enjoying myself immensely" - to a letter from a Boer prison camp: "Not a very satisfactory address to write from." When he escaped, Pamela's response was direct. Her telegram read tersely: "Thank God - Pamela." Before he returned, Churchill's mother wrote to him: "Pamela is devoted to you and, if your love has grown as hers, I have no doubt it is only a question of time for you 2 to marry."

  • John Enoch Powell (1912-06-16 - 1998-02-08) was a British politician and Conservative Party MP between 1950 and February 1974, and an Ulster Unionist MP between October 1974 and 1987. All political lives, unless they are cut off in midstream at a happy juncture, end in failure, because that is the nature of politics and of human affairs.

  • Operation Hope Not
  • This was their finest hour ”Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British life and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us now. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age, made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour” House of Commons 18th June 1940
