Lord Hussey of North Bradley 1924 - 2007

I met Marmaduke Hussey only once. We talked for a long time on the lawn at Bodesgallen, Nr Llandudno. He made a big impression on me - as he did on everyone he met.

I recall referring to the latest 'crisis' that was engulfing the BBC, of which he was the Thatcher-appointed Chair, at that time. Marmaduke Hussey just smiled and said that he remembered when the Germans blew his leg off at Anzio and took him prisoner. Now that was what he thought of as a crisis!
