On this day in 1941: October 29, Winston Churchill visited his old school

And gave a stirring speech for the ages.

Borrowing with permission from Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub:

Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never — in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense!

Winston S. Churchill, address to the boys of Harrow School, October 29, 1941.
