N MEASURED slow time, sailors march as if feeling their way through darkness. Here the procession moves up Whitehall. Big Ben looms on the skyline. Face in the crowd (below), one of the multitude who stood to watch the proces sion, reflects the sad pride of a people's farewell to the man acclaimed "the greatest Englishman." OFFICERS of the Queen's Royal Irish Hussars, Churchill's own regiment, bear his medals and honors: first cushion, right, Order of St. Olav, Norway; second, Order of Star of Nepal; third,Order of Elephant, Denmark, Great Britain's Orders of Merit and Companions of Honour, Order of Netherlands Lion, and military decorations from India, Italy, Spain, Cuba, the United States, the Sudan, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark, and France; and fourth, Crown of Oak of Luxembourg, Order of Leopold of Belgium, and Grand Sash of the High Order of Sayyid Mohammed Bin Ali al Senussi, given by a North African tribe that scouted for Britain in World War II. White plumes waving from burnished helmets, the Life Guards of the Household Cavalry wheel round a turn. 211 EKTACHROMESBY B.
