A wartime photo of Winston Churchill and his zip up shoes

I follow the @PaulGoodmanCH twitter feed, and jolly good it is too. Saves me following lots of people. It frequently has a classy nugget of information, or opinion. I don’t re-tweet as I’ve nothing of import to add to the original tweet.

In this instance a couple of lovely photo tweets by @northumbriana deserve more publicity. Firstly a 1945 photo of Churchill and his military chiefs of staff, followed by a photo of Winston Churchill’s shoes – amazingly with zips, instead of laces. Here are the two photo’s. The people in the group are, L-R Portal, Brooke and Cunningham; Hollis and Ismay standing. Click on image to enlarge.
