‘Leggy blonde’ for Saudi official, 1973

D.Tatham, Middle East Department, FCO to FCO, 10 September 73

Notes his talk today with Mohammed Al Fawzan, the Director of Foreign Broadcasting in the Saudi Ministry of Information:

‘Mohammed had been very ably fielded by Mr Morris in our embassy in Paris who had advised the COI [Central Office of Information] of the collapse of his French tour. The COI had provided him with a large Jaguar and an attractively leggy blonde and Mohammed seemed in a thoroughly anglophile mood’.
