Winston Churchill was named after:
1) An obscure brand of cigarette
2) The Beatles rhythm guitarist
3) Mr Churchill, his Dad.
Embodying all that is best in English sportsmanship the Winston cigarette advert featuring a young tweedy English carrying a shotgun on the grouse moor - that may well have inspired the Churchills to name their son when the ad appeared in Readers Digest.
Could Winston Churchill be the Working Class Hero referred to Penny Lane? My instincts lead me to think otherwise.....
