Here are the IMG Steering Committee (click link for full document) minutes from a meeting held on 1st January 1967!


Whilst the IMG conference on 28/29 January 1967 is in many ways the founding conference of the IMG, and is treated that way by Ernie Tate in his book, the name IMG is used prior to that. Mike Martinsays the name was adopted in November 1966.

We have many of the January 1967 conference documents and will do a post on it soon.

    I was at a SLL London Aggregate meeting where Gerry Healy said Ted Knight was doing entry work for the SLL in the Pabloites. Not sure if it was as clear cut as that as if he was a Healy spy I would have thought he would have taken part in group events.

      There’s a mention of a CK proposing something but that person isn’t listed as being in attendance. Is it just a typo for Ken Coates?

        More a case of using reversed initials completely inconsistently!

    Stuart King has interviewed Ted Knight and the transcript will very likely appear in the next Revolutionary History. It sheds considerable light on his activity in this period.

    The minutes refer to a proposed publication called Vietnam Spokesman. I can’t recall any such publication. Were any issues published? Possibly it was published under a different name.

      It could possibly have been a Vietnam themed issue of Spokesman journal or some kind of supplement. I wonder if the BRPF In Nottingham might know?
