This week: Profile:
Major Dudley Gardiner , MBE
For 16 years MAJOR GARDINER has been running a soup kitchen in one of the poorest parts of Calcutta. With support from charities in England, Australia and Calcutta he feeds 6,000 people every day.
The hungry and the starving who can come to his kitchen are given a midday meal. For those living further away, Major Gardiner sets out every afternoon on a 35-mile drive round the city giving food to the most needy.
Harold Williamson went to Calcutta to talk to Major Gardiner about his work and ask him why he chose to dedicate his life to feeding the starving: in 16 years he has never missed a day - they even had to pin the MBE on him in his kitchen.
