Object description

The Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, talking to Alex Henshaw, holder of the Cape Town to London record and now a Spitfire test pilot. He had just landed after a demonstration flight and the Prime Minister asked him questions about his reactions to the terrific speed at which he had been travelling. Mr Churchill (in 'John Bull' hat and smoking a cigar) and Mr Henshaw (in white flying overalls) are seated in the open in front of the camouflaged doors of a large aircraft hangar.
