Historian Chris Anderson Reporting From London

Marylebone Station London
Marylebone Station where Churchill began his journey to meet with President Roosevelt for the first time since becoming prime minister.

Our senior historian, Chris Anderson, is our man in London. He’s been taking a few snaps during his allotted hour of exercise out and about during the pandemic lockdown. One weekend in May he got to Marylebone Station with his wife and daughter. It was from here, on August 3, 1941, that Churchill in one of his famous ‘siren suits,’ this one in air force blue, began his journey to meet with President Roosevelt for the first time since becoming prime minister. The result of the meeting in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, would be the Atlantic Charter. 

The photos are of the station today, and Chris’s two ladies at an appropriate intersection just outside the station.
