Sir Winston Churchill, statesman, orator and former Prime Minister was a man whose words gave hope and inspiration to the British people, and many are as relevant today as they were during the war years. Churchill's speeches were not always confined to serious political rhetoric and motivation: his off-the-cuff quips and comments displayed a wry wit and humour. This selection of 20 postcards - taken from the Ammonite Press book "Churchill in Quotes" (9781906672614) - "Wit and Wisdom from the Great Statesman" is a celebration of an outstanding figure in British history. Each postcard - which on the flip side includes detailed information on the photograph - can be peeled off and mailed, or kept as a memento. All images were hand-picked from the vast archives of the Press Association.
