A Humour of Love

Robert Montagu

John Mackintosh Hall

Robert Montagu speaks to Paul Blezard about the abuse suffered at the hands of his MP father, Victor Montagu, the 10th Earl of Sandwich.  The abuse was revealed publicly for the first time in his recently published memoir, A Humour of Love. The book is one that Montagu initially planned to write as fiction under a pseudonym because of the painful nature of the story, but ultimately decided it was right to speak openly about. It is the disturbing tale of how a father confused lust and love and abused an innocent seven-year-old on an almost daily basis until he was 11.
