|Associated Press. Churchill At Work on the War Again, 1943
After the Teheran Conference,
Churchill contracted pneumonia, followed by a heart attack.
He was well enough by Christmas Day, however, to discuss
military plans with General Eisenhower (left) and
Field Marshal Harold Alexander (second from left) in
Carthage. Churchill is shown wearing his famous dragon-emblazoned
dressing gown over his even more famous "siren suit"--a
one-piece zip-front jumpsuit named for its simplicity in
putting on quickly at the sound of an air raid siren.
