I see the phrase the "wind of change" is attributed to Harold MacMillan 1960, but I recall it, or similar, being used by both Winston Churchill and Basil Rathbone (Rathbone in the guise of Sherlock Holmes)many years earlier (Holmes in 1 of the propaganda "modernised" films circa 1942)Anyone have the full version of this speech/quote please?
