Acme Newspictures. The Churchills Meet Some WAC's, 1943
On his trip to North America for the first Quebec Conference (QUADRANT), Churchill was accompanied by his wife Clementine and his daughter Mary, who served as his aide-de-camp. In Quebec, the conferees discussed plans for the cross-Channel attack—the Second Front—and the development of the atomic bomb. After the conference (August 17-24, 1943), the Churchills went to Washington. Here Mary and Clementine speak with three Women's Army Corps officers while visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
