Sir David Lincoln Lightbown (30 November 1932 – 12 December 1995) was the Conservative Member of Parliament for South East Staffordshire from 1983 until he died in office in 1995 aged 63 (he suffered a heart attack while watching a rugby match). The resulting by-election for his seat was won by the Labour Party candidate Brian Jenkins.

During his time in Parliament Lightbown served as a government whip. His imposing physique and reputation for robust methods led to him being branded “the Terminator”.[1]
