Not sure how many people realize that he was British. Many may not know or care that he was knighted and as such was Sir Chaplin as of 1975 — two years prior to his death.

He was banned from the U.S. suspected of Communist sympathies. Quite the life. Eventful to say the least.

The Term ‘Iron Curtain’ Coined By Winston Churchill, This Day, March 5 — 71 Years Ago.

by Anura Guruge


March 5, 1946,
Winston Churchill, then Leader of the Opposition as of July 26, 1945,
at a speech at Westminster College, Missouri, U.S.A.
(Churchill was NOT knighted until 1953.
So he wasn’t a ‘Sir’ when he gave this speech.)

What a GREAT man. One of my abiding heroes and a near daily inspiration.
