Prime Minister's Office: Private Office Diaries of Visits by Prime Minister
This series contains typewritten diaries of events during visits by the Prime Minister, apparently compiled by his private secretaries. The diaries concern the Prime Minister's visits to the USA and Canada in 1941 to 1945, and to Italy in August 1944.
Commander Charles Ralfe Thompson, RN (1894-1966) was personal assistant to the Minister of Defence from 1940 to 1945. During this period, the office of Minister of Defence was held by the Prime Minister, and Thompson organised and accompanied Churchill on all his official journeys until Churchill left office in July 1945.
