Many of Sir Winston Churchill’s talents have been passed to his descendants. Over the thirty-three years of Jonathan’s life, it has become apparent that he too shares some of those interests and passions.
Sir Winston’s love of art and writing, his interest in history, his passion for Britain and America, his fascination with the American culture and its people, these too are talents and passions Jonathan says:“I have been very fortunate to inherit.”
Hampered with dyslexia throughout his school life, a learning difficulty scarcely recognised in those days, Jonathan suffered many setbacks, and like his great-grandfather, had a miserable time at school.
With the encouragement and life lessons of his great-grandfather, Jonathan has already been opening the minds of both children and adults and introducing them to the significance of Churchill’s philosophy of “Never Surrender!”
