Sir Winston Churchill was a member of the National Independent Order of Odd Fellows

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill(30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) was a British politician and statesman known for his leadership of the United Kingdom during the Second World War (WWII). He is widely regarded as one of the great wartime leaders. He served as prime minister twice (1940–45 and 195155). A noted statesman and orator, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, writer, and an artist. To date, he is the only British prime minister to have received the Nobel Prize in Literature, and the first person to be recognised as an honorary citizen of the United States. 


He was a member of Loyal Waterloo Lodge of the National Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
