Oft quoted or paraphrased Winnie line

Apparently the version from a letter to Lord Moyne goes like this:
"Owing to the neglect of our defences and the mishandling of the German problem in the last five years, we seem to be very near the bleak choice between War and Shame. My feeling is that we shall choose Shame, and then have War thrown in a little later, on even more adverse terms than at present."

There is suppose to exist also a letter to Lloyd George saying something similar.
