Churchill's standing as a towering figure of the 20th century is such that his two major biographies required multiple authors and decades of research between volumes. The bill, which mandated only the remedy of confinement in institutions, eventually passed in both houses of Parliament.
Considering he had just returned to the Conservative Party, Churchill was quite surprised to be given the very important position of chancellor of the exchequer in the new conservative government that same year. He was so enthusiastic about aviation that he took flying lessons himself to understand firsthand its military potential.
Churchill didn't go just as an interested soldier, however.
He was never an excellent student but he was well-liked and was known as a bit of a troublemaker. Upon his return to Britain, he wrote about his experiences in the book London to Ladysmith via Pretoria Couple these traits with the fact that Churchill liked to be part of the action and you have Churchill trying to have his hands in all military matters, not only those dealing with the navy.
