Edward John Barrington Douglas-Scott-Montagu, 3rd Baron Montagu of Beaulieu (20 October 1926 – 31 August 2015) was an English Conservative politician well known in Britain for founding the National Motor Museum, as well as for a pivotal cause célèbre in British gay history following his 1954 conviction and imprisonment for homosexual sex, a charge he denied.

Comment - In Paddock wood there is a Business Centre Inaugurated by the Duchess of Kent, it the region of Hampshire we have had many very important acquaintances - still/when we talk and write to the Officials their respective attitude. We have been praying as requested prayers in Chichester Cathedral the best part of this summer -   What about that Pinnacle Tower in Portsmouth.
