An article on the Travel Pulse website by Doug Cogswell recounts the travels undertaken by Celia Sandys with her grandfather Winston Churchill. Sandys’ first trip as Churchill’s traveling companion was a Mediterranean cruise aboard Aristotle Onassis’ yacht in 1959 when she was 16 years old. She also accompanied her grandfather on several of his trips to the south of France, including the 1962 visit during which Churchill fell and broke his hip.

A recent Daily Mail article includes several photographs taken during a reunion dinner hosted by President Dwight Eisenhower at the home of the American ambassador during his 1959 trip to London. Churchill was the guest of honour at the event with Field Marshals Alanbrooke, Alexander, and Montgomery also in attendance.
