825 Sir Winston Churchill

550 Sir Winston Churchill

Connections with Brighton and Hove : The celebrated wartime Prime Minister attended a school in Brunswick Hove when a small boy. His parents paid little attention to him when he was there and Churchill was at times unhappy. He also at one time became seriously ill. Luckily he survived and went on to attend Harrow where he did not cover himself with scholastic glory. But later he became a journalist, writer, MP and Prime Minister, leading Britain to victory against Hitler in 1945. Honorary Freeman of the Borough of Brighton, 3 October 1947. He died 18 years later aged 90. A plaque on a house wall in Landsdowne Place records his local schooling. He would worship at the Chapel Royal steadfastly facing east whilst the rest of the congregation faced, incorrectly but logically, north.
