That's it. I haven't seen it yet but I hope to get around to visiting it sometime when I'm in Seattle and the University's not in session.

There's a Lincoln Battalion vet who's still active in local politics in Seattle, despite being 90. His name is Abe Osheroff. I may post some quotes and links of his later for the benefit of our less enlightened friends on here. I think British Sapper would like him particularly, since he's a former Communist and a Jew. He's a really cantankerous old liberal, seems like a great guy.

There's the one in Washington and one in Wisconsin, (Madison?) for the American lincoln Brigade. For Franco's Irish Brigade there's one in Spain, and a memorial plaque on a pew in Dublin's pro-cathedral in honor of Sgt. Gabriel Lee. There are no memorials outside of Spain.

There is a memorial to the men from Dundee who were killed in Spain fighting for the Republican cause. It is located outside the Mc Manus gallery in Dundee city centre. There was a parade which featured International Brigade veterans at the relocation ceremony. I have photos and will post some later if anyone is interested regards Rich

They put up a memorial in the City of San Franciso, USA, about 10-15 years ago. Shortly after, it was vandalized by Anarchists and again soon after. I suspect it has been vandalized many more times. Anarchists -- they hold grudges. :wink:
