A WINSTON CHURCHILL SIGNED QUOTATION PRAISING THE R.A.F. AT THE HEIGHT OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN
A WINSTON CHURCHILL SIGNED QUOTATION PRAISING THE R.A.F. AT THE HEIGHT OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN
A WINSTON CHURCHILL SIGNED QUOTATION PRAISING THE R.A.F. AT THE HEIGHT OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN A superlative signed item and most probably dating from World War II, a signed calligraphic presentation of one of Churchill's most famous quotations: "Never before in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few. Winston S. Churchill" Churchill placed his fine, bold black ink signature "Winston S. Churchill" beneath the carefully hand-painted lettering. The age of the paper, calligraphic style, and the form of Churchill's signature easily date this piece to the war years, or the period immediately thereafter, at the latest. Churchill apparently first uttered these famous words upon his exit from the bunker at RAF Uxbridge on August 16, 1940 when visiting the No. 11 Group RAF Operations Room during a day of battle. Afterwards, Churchill told Major General Hastings Ismay, "Don't speak to me, I have never been so moved". After several minutes of silence, he said, "Never in the history of mankind has so much been owed by so many to so few". The sentence would form the basis of his speech to the House of Commons four days later. Dimensions approximately 11 x 14.5 inches. Very lightly toned, otherwise in fine condition. Poster not included, for illustrative purposes only.
