He married, in Oxford on 8 August 1908, Lady Gwendoline Theresa Mary Bertie (20 November 1885 – 7 July 1941), a Roman Catholic, the daughter of Montagu Bertie, 7th Earl of Abingdon and Gwendoline Mary Dormer.

He was commissioned into the Queen's Own Oxfordshire Hussars in 1898. He served in the South African Light Horse alongside his war correspondent brother in the Second Boer War between 1899 and 1900, where he was Mentioned in Dispatches, and shot through the leg during the Battle of the Tugela Heights, part of the campaign for the relief of Ladysmith.[1]

He fought in the First World War, where he was again Mentioned in Dispatches. He also served on the staff of Field Marshal Lord French, General Sir Ian Hamilton (serving as Naval Liaison Officer for the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force) and Field Marshal Lord Birdwood (serving as Camp Commandant, 1st Anzac Corps, and then as Assistant Military Secretary at the headquarters of the Fifth Army). He reached the rank of Major.

He was awarded the French decorations of the Croix de Guerre and the Légion d'Honneur. He was awarded the British Distinguished Service Order in 1918.

John Strange Spencer-Churchill became a businessman in the City of London.

John Strange Spencer-Churchill and his brother Winston were very close. John and his children spent a lot of time with his brother's family at Chartwell and other residences. During the Second World War the widowed John lost his house during the Blitz and he lived in Downing Street.[2]

He died of a heart disease[3] and is buried near his parents and brother at St Martin's Church, Bladon, near Woodstock, Oxfordshire.

Children

The couple had three children:

* John George Spencer-Churchill (31 May 1909–1992)
* Henry Winston Peregrine Spencer-Churchill (25 May 1913 – 19 March 2002)
* Anne Clarissa Churchill, Countess of Avon (born 28 June 1920), the widow of the former prime minister Anthony Eden.

Despite the Ne Temere decree, apparently only their daughter was brought up as a Catholic, the faith of her mother (herself the daughter of a convert).
