Stefan de Batselier reports from Germany on Wednesday, January 28, 2004 some unusual facts about Churchill, a black cat, and The Savoy Hotel
Churchill's stuffed cat. At least it was just a cat
THE story of the stuffed cat is, I can assure you, well known in RAF circles.
In many messes, there were similar functionaries. I particularly remember when 13 Squadron were serving at RAF Luqa, Malta, where this role was filled, if required, by the unofficial squadron mascot, a giant foam rubber penis. When not so required, said mascot lived in a cage with several parrots.
The RAF have always had a peculiar sense of humour. . . I know, I was there!
