Was Winston Churchill saved from drowning while a youth by Scottish farmer whose own son would discover penicillin which would be used to save the the great leader’s life again?

Um, no.

Churchill, who grew up in Ireland, was never saved by a Scottish farmer. His life was, however, saved by an antibiotic during World War II.  It was not penicillin, though, but a sulphonamide.

But it was reported as penicillin. Sulphonamides were a German discovery.
