Last weekend my local heritage railway station had a 1940's day so I went along for a few hours on Sunday afternoon. Took lots of 'faces' including Winston. He wanted to look into my camera, but I asked him to turn away as posed.

The classic Churchill pose with the cigar between the lips and the fingers. I went through the images I found after doing a Google of Winston Churchill and I found only one with this pose but in that image Churchill was looking at the cameraman. This fellow looks truly very much like Churchill in comparison to the pictures I saw online.

Hands down...your "Finest Hour" capture of Winston. And a good idea to have him turn his head for you - a great candid shot.
