Jack Churchill

Recommended Posts

There was an article about Jack Churchill 9th December 2018.

May I add something to the story?

After the war Jack Churchill transferred to the Seaforth Highlanders. Last year someone brought some of his artefacts to the Highlander's Museum at Fort George where I volunteer. I was fortunate enough to get photos of his bagpipes and some pictures also the flag that was flown in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Archery

The best quote I've heard from LT COL John "Mad Jack" Churchill DSO etc ( and I can't ascertain if it was mentioned in article or not )

was: "If it hadn't been for the bloody yanks we could have kept the war going for another ten years !"
