Britain Retraces Winston Churchill’s Funeral Journey 50 Years Later

It was the day an entire nation was watching, re-created 50 years later.

Britain has commemorated the state funeral of wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill by retracing the actual journey of the funeral.

Prime Minister David Cameron described Churchill as a ‘great Briton’ who should never be forgotten, and laid a wreath in his honor.

Churchill’s family stood aboard the merchant vessel Havengore, as it made its way down the Thames from the Tower of London to Westminster as it did in 1965.
