Previously unseen photos of Winston Churchill both in the theatre of war and at leisure afterwards have come to light in a new book.<br />
<br />
One snap shows him addressing troops of his 4th Hussars regiment in Cairo, while he is seen in another at the door of an aircraft with a trademark cigar in his mouth. <br />
<br />
There is also a candid image of the wartime leader painting at Lake Como in September 1945 where he convalesced after losing to Clement Attlee in the general election.<br />
<br />
The photos belonged to Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Barne, who was commanding officer of the 4th Hussars.<br />
<br />
The photos, and Lt Col Barne's war diaries, are published for the first time in a new book, Churchill's Colonel, which has been edited by his grandson Charles Barne.
