Does anyone have the book Kiwi Companeros: New Zealand and the Spanish Civil War by Mark Derby? If so will you scan through it and see if there are any songs in it. I have been running another thread
Songs in English about the Spanish Civil War and have not had any posts from or about New Zealand yet. New Zealand volunteers numbered about 20 so there was probably a resonance of the conflict in the NZ song culture and I would like to include it in this collcting project.Below are some information linksabout the war



Any contributions about individual songs or the song culture connected with the Spanish Civil War would be much appreciated

Regards, Geoff

I have a copy I was given as a present but not read yet as I'm more of a First World War buff. However, we're in the midst of Renovation Hell and my books are all in boxes and I can't lay my hands on the history boxes very easily. Do you have a date you need to know by?

Thanks to allie kiwi who emailed me to tell me about what looked like a song fragment in a newspaper cutting reproduced in the book Kiwi Companeros. The reproduction in the book was not clear enough for allie to send me all the words but she gave me full references and a link to contact the "Ask a Librarian " service of the National Library of New Zealand. She also phoned them for me and today I received an email with an attached photo of the newspaper cutting. Having looked at all the words I can now see that this is a long poem in honour of the men who died for the Spanish Republic rather than a song but it was interesting to see that New Zealand did have an appreciative public response to the sacrifice of these brave men. Thanks again to allie kiwi and all the good people at the excellent National Library of New Zealand.
I am still collecting Songs in English About The Spanish Civil War in another Mudcat thread here thread.cfm?threadid=128093 and would be pleased to have any more songs which reference New Zealand's participation in the conflict. Regards, GeoffLawes

A literary connection - the hero of John Mulgan's novel "Man Alone" (maybe the best novel ever to come out of NZ) leaves to fight in the Spanish Civil War at the end. (Mulgan himself didn't, but went to fight with the Greek partisans in WW2, which was the nearest equivalent he could get to).
