Winston Churchill is admired in Bisham

Florence Vansittart Neale gets a souvenir and considers the war news. She was an early fan of Winston Churchill, then First lord of the Admiralty. Here is the Hansard report of the speech which impressed Florence.

Had piece of shrapnel & explosion from Harry Paine. Very good speech of W. Churchill about Navy….

See about Albert Paine, he to Southampton tomorrow! Also our farm boy (now in house) going off tomorrow!…

Heard Jack Farrer badly wounded.
