Thread Name: Spanish Civil War 75th Anniversary
Subject: RE: Spanish Civil War 75th Anniversary
Far distant, far distant,
lies Foyers the brave...
No tombstone memorial to hallow his grave
His bones they lie scattered on the dark soil of Spain
Where young Jamie Foyers for the workers was slain...

As Tom Lehr said, "They might have won all the battles, but we had all the good songs."


I am museing on Jock, an old Link, (Lincoln Brigade (( not really a Brigade of course))) - Scottish one legged sailor and great man (one hell of a sentence, eh?) ! Well, Jock used to sing to me... a song sung in the Lincoln Brigade ( in answer to me singing Jamie Foyers to him......)

The Workers flag is growing pink
It's no so red as ye may think...

La lucha continua

In One Big Union
