Thread Name: The Jarrow March
Subject: RE: Folklore: I have to ask the Brits-The Jarrow March
Leadfinger - re Charlie Hardy. I don't think he came down with the Jarrow marchers. IIRC he told me he was already in London before the march (he first took a job as a barman "with lots of experience", although he'd never even been in a pub before!). I think he said (though this was a long time ago so I might be misremembering) that he went to see (and possibly sing for) the marchers when they were just North of London. Mike Sparks would probably know the details better.
