[326] He arrived home in mid-January, having flown from Bermuda to Plymouth in an American flying boat, to find that there was a crisis of confidence in both his coalition government and himself personally,[327] and he decided to face a vote of confidence in the Commons, which he won easily.[328]. She met Winston Churchill in 1904 and they began their marriage of 56 years in 1908. Stalin had hoped to attend but declined because of the situation at Stalingrad.
