LONDON - A cigar that once belonged to late British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is to be auctioned off along with the crocodile-skin case it was found in after he died.
Churchill had been given the four-chamber Cartier pouch by his wife Clementine in 1934, and it has the brass initials WSC stamped on it, the Daily Express reported.
He had used it constantly and after his death in 1965 his widow gave it to Inspector Cyril Davies, Churchill’s former bodyguard.
The cigar and case, along with three notes from Churchill to Inspector Davies, are expected to fetch 6,000 pounds when they are sold at Christie’s in London on November 30. (ANI)
