Sylvia Townsend Warner - 30 January, 1965
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 295:
Churchill's funeral. [...] even on the wireless one could hear their silence. For the service in St.Paul's he had chosen the hymns. With his usual mastery, the first was 'Who would true valour see, Let him come hither.' But I think the R.Navy's (unless he chose the post-funeral route) usual tradition produced Rule Brittania [sic] as the launch moved off from Tower Pier.
