George Brown - commemorative pamphlet - added July 2008

Additional pamphlet - Pat Read - Irish Anarchist in SCW.

I recently checked the pamphlets and found that there were a number of articles missing from the Irish Worker and Irish Democrat collections - both now fixed. Anyone who bought an earlier edition should contact me and I'll sort things out.

There have been some additions made to the Dan Lyttle pamphlet, extending it by several pages, and a similar change to the Women and SCW pamphlet- this now includes material on Salaria Kee, the black American nurese who married an Irish volunteer.

I pulled together a collection of documents by Eugene Downing, along with an interview with him, see below. The original documents are amazingly detailed. John Corcoran has written a long article on Bob Hilliard and agreed that it could be reproduced by the IBCC. Thanks.
