LORD NORMANBROOK It is not even consistent with the picture presented by entries which Lord Moran made at the time in his Diary. When the war in Europe ended Churchill certainly was a tired man. This was not surprising, for he had driven himself mercilessly for six crowded and anxious years. It is also true that he had not prepared himself to deal with the problems of post-war Britain. Preoccupied with the conduct of the war, he had given little time and thought to the questions which would have to be faced when it was over.
For him, Parliament meant the House of Commons: he had no wish to take an honorific position in the House of Lords. Indeed, he would have preferred to keep unchanged the name by which he had always been known and to remain plain 'Mr Churchill'. Though he had always been avid for medals, he was not interested in titles. This was why he was reluctant for so long to accept the offer of the Garter. He would have liked, characteristically, to have it both ways, to accept the Garter but retain the 'Mr'.
On one occasion, however, it did. When the Queen and Prince Philip returned from Australia in I954, Churchill and I boarded the Britannia off the Needles, firstly because the Prime Minister adored the Queen and secondly because he thought it proper that Her Majesty's principal United Kingdom adviser should accompany her as she returned to these islands after so long an absence. After dinner and a film the time came to go to bed, so that all Inight be on the bridge next day when Britannia steamed up the Thames.
