Tom Clarke’s Secret Message Mix Up

An interview with Mike Arnott, Scottish Secretary of the International Brigade Memorial Trust

Mike Arnott speaks about Tom Clarke of Dundee. He served as a regular soldier in the Cameron Highlanders from 1925 to 1933. After completing his service, he was unable to find employment, joined the Communist Party in Dundee, and took part in the National Hunger March to London in 1934. After he returned from Spain, he was employed in the jute mills. Tom was photographed in 1986 by Sean Hudson in a series he named ‘Voices From Spain’.
