Sir Anthony Montague Browne, Churchill's last private secretary, has died

SHARE


The Telegraph obituaries are a wonderful chronicle of our times - almost a roman fleuve - part John Aubrey, part Anthony Powell, part P.G. Wodehouse. This obituary of Sir Anthony Montague Browne, Churchill's last private secretary is a very good one. 

Readers know that my favourite obituary was that of Denisa, Lady Newboroughwire-walker, nightclub girl, nude dancer, air pilot and uninhibited memoirist.
