Happy Birthday!

Scotland's great labour leader,

John Maclean

was born

14 August 1879
(died St Andrews Day, 11/30/1923)

        Tak tent when he's speakin', for they'll mind whit he said here
        In Glasgie, oor city -- an' the haill warld beside.
        Och hey, lad, the scarlet's bonnie: here's tae ye, Hielan' Shony!
        Oor John Maclean has come hame tae the Clyde.
        Oor John Maclean has come hame tae the Clyde.

                "The John Maclean March," Hamish Henderson

Maclean's triumphant return to Glasgow from Peterhead Jail was 3 December 1918. See The biography by James D. Young, John Maclean: Clydeside Socialist (Clydeside Press.)

Thanks, Guest. Ed Miller sings this song and I love it. Always wanted to know more about the man who inspired it.   Tw

AWWWWrIIIIGHT, Susanne. Bless you a BUNCH. Proof of the biblical "Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be open to you" instructions.

I've asked before and I'll ask again--When's Mudcat gonna start handin' out college degrees? I'm learning here all the time.   Tw
