Accessory Mascots

Political Figures:  Winston Churchill.

Winston Churchill, produced around 1945.  Said to be made from the metal of enemy aircraft!  The image incorporates the famous V & cigar, both symbols associated with the great man.  These mascots were sold to raise funds after the war.

A gifted wordsmith, one of his speeches - as war became inevitable - has gone down in history as one of the forces behind true British grit and bulldog determination.

Delivered in a low, growling voice were these now immortal words:  "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 street:  We shall fight in the hills:  We shall never surrender."  Good for him!
