Stafford Red Flame

October 5, 2016

moleyHere is a nice little item: Stafford Red Flame, no 4, the paper of Stafford Spartacus League.

With hand drawn pictures, and cartoons ‘adapted’ from the Morning Star(!), it is an interesting ‘youth’ paper.

The bleak, uncredited, poem ‘If You Get Up’ has an air of Adrian Mitchell about it but could well have been penned by a local supporter who wished to remain anonymous.

An article on the 30th anniversary of Trotsky’s murder dates the issue to the latter half of 1970

I wonder if any copies of other issues might still exist anywhere in any comrade’s collections?
