“It was the finest toy I ever had in my life”. What was British World War Two prime minister Winston Churchill referring to?

Answer: His British Admiralty yacht ‘Enchantress’, the 4,000 tonne steam vessel provided to the First Lord of the Admiralty, a post Churchill was appointed to in 1911 aged just 36. It was one of the perks of office. The other was Admiralty House, a grand mansion in London, where he and his family resided, and where Churchill could conduct official Admiralty business.
