Joan Bakewell talks with Lady Dowding
As a little girl of 8, Lady Dowding dreamed that one day she would marry a man called Hugh, and in 1951 she did: Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding of Battle of Britain fame. He arrived at her Tunbridge Wells home, 'with a trunk, a desk and a chair.' Under her influence he became a vegetarian, never wore leather or fur and developed a great love of animals.
