Photographs from a family collection show Winston Churchill and his family during his teenage years at the age of 18.

Captured during the winter of 1892, Churchill was snapped standing beside his lesser-known sibling, Jack, outside the residence of his Aunt Cornelia in Canford Magna.

The photographs showcase Churchill in the presence of a majestic stone lion, with one snapshot capturing him holding a small, lively terrier dog.

Among the collection of images, there exists one of Jennie, the mother of the boys, exuding elegance as she casually rests against a column of the property.

In the historical image, Churchill exudes a sense of assurance, projecting a commanding presence that would prove invaluable in rallying the Allies to victory over Nazism during his time as Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the portrait of his younger sibling John, affectionately referred to as 'Jack,' offers a compelling glimpse into a life lived in the shadow of his famous brother.

he fought in both the Boer War and the First World War, garnering honourable mentions in Dispatches across both conflicts.

Transitioning to the Second World War, he sought refuge in Number 10 Downing Street following the bombing of his residence by the Luftwaffe.

Known for his banking career, he passed away in 1947.

Following the moment the Churchill brothers were captured on film, a tragic incident unfolded when Winston plummeted from a nearby bridge, facing imminent death.

Locals often identified this bridge as the one situated at Branksone Dene Chine although some would argue that it was Alum Chine instead.

Either way, the dire fall occurred as Winston attempted to evade his pursuing brother and cousin by jumping for a tree, but sadly lost his grip and tumbled down instead.

After suffering a kidney rupture, he slipped into a coma that lasted for three days.

In a bid to ensure his son's well-being, his father dispatched highly skilled London physicians to the coastal town to provide medical care.

During his time of recuperation, Churchill discovered that he had been unsuccessful in gaining acceptance to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on his second try.

However, he secured a spot on his third attempt.
