I have one of these documents in my possesion. It relates to my great grandfather who served in the royal vetenary corps in the british army during WW1 and apprently saved a group of horses under heavy cannon fire. I have the original document still in the original frame dated March 1919.

I telephoned a very well known London auction house and they stated that they have had many enquiries regarding the "signed" mentioned in dispatches and unfortunately they are a reprint.

I hope this answers the question

Who was worse Hitler or Churchill?

Hitler was responsible for deaths of 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, and millions of other people.Also, he had concentration camps and was a racist, but he modeled his policies on another abominable racist, who inspired him and his crimes - on Churchill, and British rule of India (that Hitler intended as a model in his brutal oppression of the Slavs and Jews).Churchill was responsible for starvation of 7 millions of Indian people, while British rule is responsible for genocide that resulted one billion of Indian lives lost.Facinating!According to the book I read there wasnt one billion Indians during the 1700's till 1945 when the British empire decolonised. In fact it would mean that 1 sixth of the whole planets poulation today would live in India.This is incredible since China only has an estimated 1.6 billion today. My my, India would be a crowded place on the planet!Lets start calculating this. 1876 India becomes part of the British empire 1945 Britain starts decolonisation. Thats 69 years. Say add 20 years for conquest 80 years or there abouts. One billion into 80.(Ill use an American billion to give you a chance in your argument) That means that 12.5 million people in India were personally murdered by Churchill per year for 80 years!Churchill was the First Minister of the Treasury for 10 years total. He must have been a busy boy!Churchill was unashamed racist,So were many people during this period of history. You cannot apply current political correctness in historic retrospect.Abraham Lincon was documented as being pro-slavery prior to and after instigating the antislavery act in America. So for Churchill to be a racist may we be true, but not unusual of the period.was in favor of use of poison gas on "uncivilized tribes"Was he? I think you'll find that the books actually say "The British had considered using poison gas against the Kurds but it was never implemented". So because Churchill was British he personally was in favour of using poison gas?Lots of things are considered in any government of any country, few of them are actually implemented. After all isn't that what a Parliament, senate or assembly is all about? Selecting and discarding options according to merit and sensibility.(Hitler used Zyklon B on Jews, and British used mustard gas on Iraqi women and children).There is no reference to this. Saddam Hussien used mustard gas on his own poeple. I think you are confused.But... "Mustard Gas (Yperite) was first used by the German Army in September 1917"British invented concentration camps in the Boer war, killing women and children. Hitler imitated British in every way, but racist theories and policies, implemented by Churchill in during and after WWI, and in WWII are of British origin.No the Russians invented the term concentration camp which the Polish historian Władysław Konopczyński documented as being created in Poland in the 18th century.Besides which concentration camp as a term is quoted in the roundhouse dictionary as meaning "A guarded compound for the detention or imprisonment of aliens, members of ethnic minorities, political opponents, etc." This is somewhat different to the use of the concentration camps by the Nazi's which were effectively factories for the murder of anyone whom the Nazi regieme considered not racially pure.Hitler spared what he hoped to be his potential allies in Dunkirk,Hitler admired the British people, so what? And hitler spared the allies at Dunkirk? Hitler didn't order the German army to halt Gerd Von Rundstedt and Gunther Von Kluge suggested that they should consolidate their position to avoid the allies breaking through at a weak point. There was no empathy in this, it was simple logistics.but Churchill believed higher race are British, not all Germanic people.Documentary evidence source please?He killed millions in firebombing of Dresden, Hamburg, Berlin and many other cities.Quoted from wikkipedia..."The Bombing of Dresden was a military bombing by the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and the United States Army Air Force (USAAF)"..."A 1953 United States Air Forcereport written by Joseph W. Angell defended the operation as the justified bombing of a military and industrial target, which was a major rail transportation and communication centre, housing 110 factories and 50,000 workers in support of theNazi war effort"Doesn't sound like a wholly British operation to me. But you have to consider that there were no convinient smart bombs or Apache "See the whites of their eyes" Helicopters available at the time.The civilian casualty losses to Dresden were estimated at 22,000.Both Churchill and Hitler were in favor of eugenics.Yes they were but you left out a lot of other poeple like Margeret Sanger, Theodore Roosavelt, H.G.Wells, George Bernard Shaw, John Maynard, and that the sterilisation of "Defectives" had already been carried out in the United States.Those people changed their minds about Eugenics. Hitler did not.Hitler was a kindly man, vegetarian who didn't drink or smoke. He suffered from flatulence.I'm sure he was a lovely man, if you didn't happen to be;A gypsy, a Jew, a Negro, an Asian, physically disabled, mentally retarded, unemployed, have a hereditary defect, short, epileptic,... or within ten feet of him after a curry night.Churchill was an ill tempered alcoholic,But a fantastic orator and (allegedly) wasn't flatulant. Score one to Churchill!who smoked fat cigarsThis point is totally irelevant. Yes he did and this wasn't particularly unusual for this period in time. Most people smoked and it wasn't seen as doing anything wrong. besides fat cigars are much better than those skinny ones, ask Bill Clinton.... and held his meetings in nude.This refers to a single incident which was reported by his stenographer. Its worth pointing out that he was in his bedroom in the Whitehouse at the time and had just that second, got out of the bath when Roosevelt walked in unnannounced. Churchill Joked "You see, Mr. President, I have nothing to hide from you." It's worth noting that after Churchills death the story was expanded to include a meeting in the nude. Sounds like his stenographer wanted to sell a few extra books by adding a bit of sensation to the mix!Roosevelt was against both Third Reich (that he fought against and helped Russians beat the Hitler) and atrocious British Empire (that, mostly thanks to Roosevelt, also dissolved after the WWII). He was a great US president, and is universally respected.Do you think you think he missed the bit about Roosavelt being in favour of eugenics? Selective memory perhaps?Death toll:Hitler and Nazi Germany : 30 million (6 million in direct genocide)Churchill and British Empire: 1 billion(Do the math people!)(7 million Indians in one genocidal incident alone, rarely mentioned today)So rare that there is no record of it. Youd think that some other country not involved would mention this little nugget but nope.But for comparison lets look at the track record of a few other organisations.The Roman Empire comparitively millions compared with the population at the time.The Roman Catholic Church millions. (Remember Torquemarda, cos NOBODY expects the Spanish inquisition!).The Spanish Empire, an entire civilisation.(South America Incas)The Soviet Union (Name your state!).The Spartans ...(errr lots But three hundred died(Allegedly!)).Here's a fun list of Genocides in history on wikipedia no one country misses out on this list! [Ref: 1 bottom of page related links]Nobody says it is right to create an Empire by conquest but if you get back to the crux of this Neo Nazi rhetoric, it was about Churchill and Hitler, not about the British Empire.Churchill didn't create the British Empire, he was prime minister from 1940 - 1945 and 1951-1955.The first British Empire started in 1583-1783. The British empire you know started in 1783 and ended in 1945. If this is taken into account it actually looks like Churchill was central to ending the British Empire.Both Churchill and Hitler were racists, for eugenics, use of poison gas and concentration camps, Hitler in fact emulated Churchill.Dont forget Roosevelt, a documented supporter of eugenics!Poeple sometimes support bad things, not everyone acts on those things and kills poeple over it at least I don't remember H.G.Wells creating an army and using eugenics to support the murder of weomen and children in death camps yet he too supported eugenics.Yet due to propaganda, their images are distorted.A fact well known by Joseph Goebbels (Propaganda minister). It seems that many facts have been distorted here Joseph would be proud to know that you are continuing his legacy.Clearly, Churchill was worseOnly in your Neo-Nazi mind.
