Jack Jones

Funny, I’d been thinking about Jack Jones since I went last week to see the new hang of “After Guernica” at the Whitechapel. Jack Jones fought in the International Brigades, and was wounded at the Battle of Ebro. There was a letter from Jack Jones’ son, Mick, sending in some photographs of Clement Atlee at the Whitechapel. Sad to hear of his death. Perhaps more later, but for now, nice obituaries from Red Maria and Modernity. And another by Mick Hall.

More obits coming in: Charlie McAndy Newman.
