Elizabeth II, Queen (1926 –      ) & Churchill, Winston S. (1874 – 1965)

An extremely rare document signed by both Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II (‘E.R.’).

Churchill writes to the Queen from Downing Street, December 28th 1954, in full, ‘Sir Winston Churchill, with his humble duty to The Queen, has the honour to recommend that William Rankine Milligan, Esqure, Q.C., be sworn of Your Majesty’s most honourable Privy Council on his appointment as Lord Advocate’. Very boldly signed by Churchill in fountain pen, and countersigned by the Queen at the top, ‘Appd, E.R.’

In very fine condition. The first item we have handled signed by these two towering figures of the Twentieth Century.
