About This Item

London, 4 September 1944. Letter. Creases from folding. Near Fine. A SIGNED letter on the Prime Minister's stationery from John Miller Martin, principal private secretary (1940-1945) to Winston Churchill, to Richard Tobin of the NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE giving details about the story of Churchill singing "Rule, Britannia" on the cruiser Enterprise in July 1944 when he went to visit the shores of Normandy a little over a month after the D-Day invasion. With a manuscript of the lyrics and the original envelope stamped "First Lord of the Treasury."

"On the first night when I visited the wardroom the officers were singing songs. At the end they sang the chorus of "Rule, Britannia." I asked them what were the words. Nobody knew them. So I recited some of Thomson's noble lines myself" (CHURCHILL, Winston: THE SECOND WORLD WAR, Volume VI: TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY, page 26).
