I don't see any changes to the related corporate bodies, but
regardless, the revision of the heading meets the long-term goal of
ridding the file of compatible headings. (Those of us who contract for
authority processing services do not need to do any manual revision of
our catalogs anyway for a change like this--when everything works as it
should, that is.)
One thing that puzzles me, though. Why wasn't some biographical
information added to the AR to justify the dates? Many of these older
ARs that were converted from cards lack such information. I always add a
670 to reinforce the dates in the heading.

The Churchill heading was upgraded from AACR2-compatible to full AACR2.
Changes to the related corporate body headings for the Prime Minister
what prompted this other change.

remove "Sir." This is going to create a LOT of unnecessary cleanup in
all of our catalogs.
