Winston Churchill Machine Gun Photo On July 31, 1940, British prime minister Winston Churchill visited the coastal defenses near Hartlepool, England during the bleakest period of the Battle of Britain. During his inspection of the troops, he was photographed holding a machine gun (or tommy gun as the Brits call it). The British press thought the photo was unflattering and it got little attention. However, the Germans obtained a copy and thought it had potential as anti-Churchill propaganda. They equated the photo with lawless American gangsters and used it to create a leaflet. Thousands of copies of this photo, bearing the caption 'Wanted for Incitement to Murder,' were dropped over London in an attempt to portray Churchill in a negative light. It didn't work. Far from being offended, the Londoners loved the image of their gun-toting PM. Thus the German propaganda leaflet had the opposite effect from what had been intended. It became a prized possession for Londoners.

Winston Churchill Fight Them On The Beaches Speech In June 1940 German forces occupied virtually all of western Europe. France and Belgium were on the verge of total collapse. The British Expeditionary Force had been evacuated from the beaches of Dunkirk to fight another day. England stood alone against mighty Nazi Germany. Winston Churchill, who had been British prime minister for just a month, broadcast this famous, defiant oration. Listen as one of the great figures of the 20th century delivers probably his most famous speech of the Second World War era. Churchill's 'fight them on the beaches' speech sets the tone of the war for the entire British Empire.

Featured Member- wikiriwhi I'm 49. I'm studying a Bacholoer of Media Arts degree at Waikato Institute of Technology in Hamilton, NZ. I am a published author and have run a small business which enabled me to get employment to many of my tribal people of Ngati Haua. I am politically motivated, a history buff and have held leadership positions in the pentecostal churches. I am currently dwelling on accepting another position. Also running for president of the student union. This site is where I come to between all of the above.

In The Still Of The Night Fred Parris, lead vocal of the Five Satins, wrote this song in 1955 in the basement of a local church. THIS is what music was all about!

Yalta Conference 1945 The fate of postwar Europe was decided in 1945 at the Soviet Union resort city of Yalta on the Crimean Sea. With Nazi Germany on the verge of defeat, the leaders of the three major Allied combatant nations met to decide the fate of Germany and eastern Europe. Franklin Roosevelt is visibly ill and weary from the long journey. The British Empire is in decline and Winston Churchill can no longer assert any strength. By default Josef Stalin is given free rein to deal with matters in eastern Europe. The Cold War was about to begin.

Hockey Night In Canada Theme What's the biggest news story in Canada today? CBC has decided to scrap the classic theme for Hockey Night In Canada which it has used on its broadcasts since 1968. Canadians from coast to coast are outraged. (I'm livid myself.) Not only is it a great tune, it's truly part of Canadian culture. Here the Kanata Symphony Orchestra plays it in a church--quite appropriate because hockey is often described as a religion in Canada.

Winston Churchill Photograph This famous photo of a defiant and angry-looking Winston Churchill was taken in Ottawa in December 1941 by famed Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh. According to Karsh, Churchill was in a foul mood because the photographer had yanked a cigar from the great man's mouth moments before the picture was taken!
