Winston Churchil

I must be missing MIL, I made three cup's of tea this morning!

As a ten year old lad I can still recall rushing up to Staines railway station bridge to watch the funeral train carrying Sir Winston Churchill's coffin to Oxford. I did see a train but whether it was 'the' train I'll never know.

Locomotive No. 34051 'Winston Churchill

WC is interred a couple of miles down the road from Thrupp in the village of Bladon so we went along to pay our respect's.

St. Martins, Bladon.
