Written by Terence Rattigan.
A celebration by the World of Entertainment for Sir Winston Churchill K-C, O.M., C.H. on the occasion of his ninetieth birthday.
"I have got tunes in my head for every war I have been to, and indeed for every critical or exciting phase in my life. Some day when my ship comes home, all collected in gramophone records, and then I will sit in a chair and smoke my cigar, while pictures and laces, moods and sensations long vanished, return; and pale but true there gleams the light of other days." (My Early Life: Winston S. Churchill)
Introduced by Noel Coward.
