Death in 10 Downing Street of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, Liberal Prime Minister 1905-1908

In a fitting tribute one of his successors, David Lloyd George said, ‘I have never met a greater public figure who so completely won the attachment and affection of the men who came into contact with him…The masses of this country…have lost the best friend they ever had in the high places of this land. He was truly a great man. A great head and a great heart. He was absolutely the bravest man I ever met in politics’.
