This earthenware mug by Moorland Pottery features a black and white wrap-around design featuring Winston Churchill and the famous quote, "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender." The quote comes from a speech delivered to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom on 4 June 1940 that is largely regarded as one of the most rousing and iconic addresses of World War II.
