An eclectic collection of Winston Churchill mementos acquired by his personal nurse is set to sell for £15,000.<br />
<br />
The late Ivan Sheppard lived with the former prime minister at his home in Chartwell, Kent, for several years in the 1950s.<br />
<br />
He kept hold of about 60 items including photos, letters, luggage labels, cigar boxes and a '10 Downing Street' labelled hatbox.<br />
<br />
Seven decades on, Mr Sheppard's family are selling the treasured items with auctioneers Duke's, of Dorchester, Dorset.
