On This Day



On This Day… Churchill Went To Fight

Written by: George Chittenden : 12 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 15th November, back in 1915 when Winston Churchill resigned from his position as First Lord of the Admiralty following the disastrous 1915 Dardanelles Campaign. Winston had been largely blamed for the failures of the British forces during the campaign since, as First Lord of the Admiralty, he had been responsible for instigating the plan and obtaining cabinet approval to carry it out.

The Campaign, which was a naval operation to force the Ottoman Empire out of the war cost the lives of thousands of British troops. So, what did Churchill do next? Great question… he went out to the Western Front where he took up a position as a battalion commander, whilst remaining a Member of Parliament! I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I wish some of today’s politicians would be dropped in a war… a long way behind enemy lines.
