Read somewhere today, that MacColl fought in the Spanish Civil War??

Ifor thanks for that post. I worked for years with an old railwayman who was a CP member during the General Strike and who helped battle the fascists in East London.
He was so proud of what he and his brothers and sisters had achieved.

He loved to quote Burns...and one of his favourites was

Its comin' yet for a' that, their Atom bombs and a' that.
When man tae man the world ower shall brither's be for a' that.

Doesn't sound like a Nazi mantra to me!!
