Winston Churchill’s cigar erased from poster at war museum

Did someone send Churchill’s nicotine habit down the memory hole?

by

At the War Experience museum in London, a guest noticed that a poster welcoming visitors to the Winston Churchill exhibit was missing Winnie’s trademark cigar. The 1948 original shows the P.M. making a victory “v” with his fingers and a cigar dangling from his mouth. The museum would never have asked for the alteration, manager John Welsh assured The Daily Telegraph. However, he won’t reveal who chose to remove the cigar.
