Winston Churchill dies age 90

Death

Churchill dies in his home in London, nine days after a stroke induced coma from which he never awakens. He is unhappy with his failing health.

I’m so bored with it all.

‘The whole world is poorer’

Tribute

Queen Elizabeth II speaks on Churchill’s death to his wife.

The whole world is the poorer by the loss of his many-sided genius while the survival of this country and the sister nations of the Commonwealth, in the face of the greatest danger that has ever threatened them, will be a perpetual memorial to his leadership, his vision, and his indomitable courage.
