Winston Churchill still owes Rs 13 to Bangalore Club

Previous British Prime Minister Winston Churchill still figures on the rundown of defaulters of the selective Bangalore Club in south India as he owes the club Rs 13 in unpaid bills.


A section, going back to June 1899, in the club’s record book recorded “Lt WLS Churchill” as one of 17 defaulters, reported the BBC.

Churchill touched base in Bangalore in 1896 as a youthful armed force officer and left after three years to battle in the North-West Frontier, now known as Pakistan.

The selective club was established by a gathering of British officers in 1868.

At present, it is one of India’s most world class clubs, holding a lot of its late nineteenth and mid twentieth century quality.
