Sir Winston Churchill Quotes

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by Big Chris, Oct 3, 2007.

  1. Hey all,
    was trying to fix my autosig after is was hacked by some drunk basatard using my computer the other night,
    for this page of quotes,
    this was the best.

    Don't talk to me about naval tradition.
    It's nothing but rum, sodomy and the lash.

    Sir Winston Churchill, (attributed)




    Cheers
    Chris

  2. My favourite Churchill story is one he told about himself.

    He related how his speechwriter had prohibited him from telling in Parliament, a wartime story about himself. The story was as follows.

    I was on a ship during the Great War, and the ship was torpedoed by the Germans. The decks heaved and before I knew it I wass tossed into the sea. I quickly looked around to find something to cling to while I waited for rescue, and, as fortune would have it, a door floated by with my initials on it.....
