Union veteran opens show.
But yesterday Jack Jones, aged 95, was back among his own people in his native Liverpool.
His particular memories were for his old comrades from the Spanish Civil War. About 160 men from Merseyside enlisted. Twenty seven were killed.
Their names are inscribed at the entrance hall to the People's Centre, in Mount Pleasant, Liverpool.
Jack was there, opening an exhibition of paintings, banners and photographs, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the International Brigades being stood down, facing defeat before the might of Francisco Franco's fascists.
Yesterday, he was escorted by his son, Mick, a distinguished artist and designer, whose magnificent poster of Liverpool's labour history hangs in the centre.
The display runs at the People's Centre for a month. Details: 0151 709 3995.
A FULL Jack Jones interview will appear in tomorrow's Daily Post.
