Winston Churchill's family motto, "Fiel Pero Desdichado," translates to "Faithful But Unfortunate." It's an odd thing to boast -- being unfortunate -- and history makes it hard for us to see how such a mantra could possibly apply to Sir Winnie.
Yet digging a little deeper, we found some truth in it.
For example, Churchill did not do well in school, and it actually took three attempts before he finally passed the entrance exam for his alma mater, the Sandhurst Military Academy.
Then, in 1899, when he was covering the Boer War in South Africa as a correspondent for the London Morning Post, Churchill escaped from a prisoner of war camp in Pretoria where he'd been held for five weeks.
So you see, "Faithful But Unfortunate" is a motto that really does fit the British statesman! Celebrate him by personalizing a set of Winston Churchill Checks from CheckAdvantage today!
