Description: The typed paper caption, dated August 12, 1944, reads: "France: Keeping in constant touch with the fighting men at the front lines, Prime Minister Winston Churchill recently paid another surprise visit to France but this time had the tables turned and was surprised himself at Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's headquarters. The Prime Minister had the dubious honor of being introduced to ‘Rommel,' the dog not the man man, or should that be reversed? And since ‘Rommel,' the German Field Marshal, is reported wounded or near death, Mr. Churchill was quite satisfied with the meeting and the ‘Dog.'"
The verso is stamped: "Acme News Pictures. Official British Photo." The photograph is in very good condition, with some surface creases.
