Growing Up with the Shadow of Churchill
12th Mar 2024, 10:45 am
Torquay Museum Society Lecture by Bill Murray
Bill's father, Sgt. Edmund Murray, was a Metropolitan Police Special Branch officer. In 1950, the year that Bill was born, he became Sir Winston Churchill's bodyguard, a position he held until the Great Man's death in 1965. Edmund was often referred to as "Churchill's Shadow", but Bill did not really appreciate the significance of that title until fifty years later.
Lectures are free of charge to Torquay Museum Society Members but the general public are also welcome to attend - £5 per ticket, payable on the door.
