The Times obituary of Lord Carrington says:

More commonly, he found himself sleeping in a hole beneath his tank with his four crew who came from poor backgrounds and had suffered hardship during the pre-war years. The experience shaped his politics, he said later. “You could not have got a finer or better lot than they were. They deserved something better in the aftermath of the war.”

Carrington was an earl and educated at Eton. Unlike the spivs who run the Conservative party now he actually had principles and understood the implications of welfare policies. He died in July 2018.
