Mr Winston is Clementine’s favourite toy, a stuffed Owl named after her hero Winston Churchill. Having been evacuated to Darkevaine House in Devon just before the Blitz, she was feeling very homesick for their family in North London when a Christmas packet arrived for her little brother Ronnie.

“He looks very wise,” said Clementine.
“He looks like Mr. Churchill!” said Ernie.
“I’m gonna call him Mr. Winston!” squealed Ronnie tucking him under his arm…’
