A never-before-seen photograph showing Prime Minister Winston Churchill hosting the very first conference of the heads of the Commonwealth at a critical time in the war has come to light.<br />
<br />
The 23ins by 27ins black and white photo was shot in the back garden 10 Downing Street on April 27, 1944, just five weeks before the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France.<br />
<br />
The prime ministers of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa were among the VIPS who attended the historic event.<br />

The unique photo is coming up for sale at Chiswick Auctions.
