2015: A year remembering WWII and perhaps our 'greatest Briton'?

This year marks several important anniversaries -

50th Anniversary of Churchills death - 30th January

"On 8 May 1945 Winston Churchill stood on a Whitehall balcony and addressed the excited crowd below. "In all our long history," he said, "we have never seen a greater day than this." Churchill had stood against Hitler and won – the day was his.

Half a century on from his death, Churchill is considered by many to be the greatest Briton. But his legacy didn't always look so secure. From trouble at school to errors in office, Churchill's path to greatness was often a rocky one."  http://www.bbc.co.uk/timelines/z363gk7
