| which future president is this? »
In the wake of the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941, General Eisenhower travelled to Britain to form the "best Army" ever to wage war. This is him at the rifle range with Churchill.
Via Michael Beschloss. (Those are Beschloss's words - "in the wake" - though actually Eisenhower didn't get to Britain until May 1942 according his official biography. Long wake, I guess).

What actually strikes me immediately about this photo is that Winston Churchill's body type is not much different from Dwight Eisenhower's -- which is not at all the current impression of him. In current stereotypes, he is seen as a fat man, but this is not at all how he appears in this photo, particularly next to Gen. Eisenhower who was reputed to be in excellent shape. What an interesting photo!
