Background: Sir Winston and Lady Churchill were filmed by VISNEWS on arrival by air in Marrakesh, Morocco, Jan 12, for a six week winter holiday. Sir Winston will indulge in his favourite hobby..painting. Cries of 'Vive Churchill' rang out as Sir Winston stepped from the four engine DC6 airliner belonging to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. The sun gleamed for the first time in two blustery, rainy days. After inspecting and blue-white cloaked Moroccan police, he drove to the Hotel Mamounia in a huge American limousine with the Governor of Marrakesh, Omar ben Shemsi.
Mr. Onassis and Lord Monckton accompanied Sir Winston and Lady Churchill on their flight from London..to have dinner with the great man. They then flew back to London. Mr. Onassis is quoted as saying "I don't mind flying 1500 miles for a dinner date with Sir Winston".
The first day of his holiday, Tuesday Jan 13, Sir Winston went out for a sightseeing trip in a car put at his disposal by the Moroccan Government..
