Duke of Bedford

Here he examines the question of imprisonment without charge or trial during WWII in Britain. Some of the cases that are dealt with include those ofCaptain Ramsey, MP. who had been severely wounded in the First World War and was a member of the Conservative Party andAdmiral Sir Barry Domville and his wife, whose eldest son who was later killed in the war. Their youngest son was also imprisoned and this included a spell at the MI5 interrogation centre atLatchmere House, Ham Common. Surrey. His treatment there makes harrowing reading. The cases ofEric Hamilton-Piercy, Captain Gordon Canning, John Beckett and of course many others includingOswald Mosley are examined and the late Duke makes it clear that he considered the whole business a disgrace, and unworthy of a civilised country.
