An entry, dating back to June 1899, in the club's ledger book listed "Lt WLS Churchill" as one of 17 defaulters, reported the BBC.

Churchill arrived in Bangalore in 1896 as a young army officer and left three years later to fight in the North-West Frontier, now known as Pakistan.

The exclusive club was founded by a group of British officers in 1868.

Currently, it is one of India's most elite clubs, retaining much of its late 19th and early 20th century splendour. (ANI)
