They shared a total of 22 years spent living in the White House - and a wooden pew in the National Cathedral for the memorial service of George HW Bush.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

It's not often that so many commanders-in-chief, present and past, are gathered in one place.

In recent years it has tended to happen at the funerals of presidents or the opening of presidential libraries.

At the state funeral of the 41st president of the United States in Washington on Wednesday, there were four together in the front row.

When George W Bush arrived and took his place on the other side of the nave, he brought that total to five, and their total years of service running the country to 30.

The significance of the moment was not lost on some.
