Lord Avebury in the wars

Alerted to the fact that Lord Avebury was in hospital as a result of a couple of accidents, I checked his blog. We always knew he was a good man, right from the time he won Orpington in a by-election (as Eric Lubbock), but the information in his potted biography that prior to entering politics he had not only been in production engineering in Rolls-Royce, but also a junior officer in the Welsh Guards, was new to me.
