    Default Help locate wartime photo of Winston Churchill

    Can anyone help me locate a wartime photo from 1941 of Churchill at Gladstone Dock.

    In the photo he is wearing a peaked cap and is talking to a couple of dockers who are eating their sandwiches.

    I have seen this photo somewhere - but can't track it down on Google etc.

    I have little doubt that U B 40fied by these, somewhere among them there will be the faces of many a Mersey-sider in wartime...

    I did have a fair gander around for any/all pictures of WC on the web. I plumped for that link in the hope that News Reel photographers may have been there at the same time. My only other thought is the Liverpool war room that is open to the public and may have as part of the exhibit photographs of him in Liverpool at various times and this might be a good place to begin looking at any rate.
    I suppose the only people with a real interest are the families of the dockers in the photograph, but no doubt this means you. I will and am sure others will keep our eyes peeled. Good luck.

    It's not the photo you mention giropay but this is WC at Gladstone Docks in April 1941 congratulating the men. I presume the one you're after comes from this series but I can't remember where I got it from.
