One page typed letter signed by Winston S. Churchill as Minister of Munitions of War. One page, dated January 1918 and addressed to Lieutenant-Colonel Sir James Forrest Halkett Carmichael, the letter reads, “My Dear Sir” I have had much pleasure in recommending to the Prime Minister that you should be appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and I am glad to learn that His Majesty has approved the recommendation. Pray accept my hearty congratulations on this recognition of your valuable services. “Yours very truly Winston S. Churchill.” With the official seal of the Ministry of Munitions of War emblem stamped at the head of the page. In near fine condition. Double matted and framed with a portrait of a young Churchill. The entire piece measures 25 inches by 14 inches.

In July of 1917, Prime Minister David Lloyd George appointed Churchill Minister of Munitions. In this position, Churchill made a commitment to increase munitions production, streamlined the organisation of the department, and soon negotiated an end to a strike in munitions factories along the Clyde. He made repeated trips to France, visiting the Front and meeting with French political leaders, including its Prime Minister, Georges Clemenceau. After the war, in 1919 Lloyd George moved Churchill to the War Office as both Secretary of State for War and Secretary of State for Air.
