United Kingdom’s most famous Prime Minister is Sir Winston Churchill. While in office from 1940 until 1945, he led Britain’s resistance against Nazi Germany until the end of World War II. But his very long political career began in 1900 as a Member of Parliament. He was also the Secretary of State for War and Air after WWI, the Minister of Defence in the early 1950’s and the Prime Minister again from 1951 – 1955. This bronze statue by sculptor Ivor Roberts-Jones was erected in Parliament Square in 1973. It is fitting Churchill’s likeness watches over the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
