Thread Name: Songs in English about the Spanish Civil War
Subject: RE: Songs in English about the Spanish Civil War
By Gerry Kearns A song about the eight volunteers from Oldham who went to fight for the Republic in the SCW.

Thank you to Ann Berriman (Willa) who told me about this song which she heard the Oldham Tinkers perform at the recent Saddleworth Festival. John Howarth of the Oldham Tinkers has just rung me in response to my email requesting information about the song. He told me that they have not yet recorded the song which they performed for the first time at Saddleworth. He said that when they record it they will post the lyrics on the Oldham Tinkers' website
