Film of Jo and Laura Grimond's wedding

Click on the picture for another gem from the British Pathe website. This one shows the wedding of Jo and Laura Grimond. Note that it is billed as the "wedding of Miss Bonham-Carter," showing who was the better known figure in 1938.

And you get a glimpse of Margot Asquith at the end too.

I met Laura Grimond when she came to Market Harborough in the 1980s to rally the troops. I could also have met Jo when he did a meeting in Kew in the 1983 general election, but being young and foolish I chose to go canvassing instead.
