Sir Desmond Morton

From Mr Stephen de la Bedoyere Sir, During World War II it was Sr Desmond Morton who reassured Churchill of the loyalty of The Catholic Herald and its Editor, Count Michael de la Bedoyere, who had written an editorial containing reservations about the AngloSoviet Pact. Had he not dones so, Herald might have been closed and Michael the second of your predecessors to be imprisoned — the other being the first Editor, Charles Diamond, who got 2 months in 1920 for an editorial aimed against the Viceroy of Ireland, Lord French, called "Killing no Murder"!

Yours faithfully, STEPHEN DE LA BEDOYERE London SW17
