Film of the young Paddy Ashdown serving in Sarawak
I have seen this clip a couple of times before. It turns out to come from one of the Look at Life films - I have featured a few of them here in the past.
The BBC once put them together to form 30-minute programmes. The video above should play just the relevant segment of this one, where you will see "Marine Lieutenant Ashdown". (Unfortunately, someone has added a rather clunky label telling us who he later became.)
Lord Bonkers suggests that unrepentant headhunters are just what you need in a closely fought by-election.
