The Flower That Never Dies.

       Spain 1936-39, a time of hope, of dreams being realised, a time to glimpse the future. They came from across the world, from all its continents, they came to protect a flower. Sadly the boot of fascism, with the assistance of the imperialist/capitalist nations trampled it, damaged it, but failed miserably to destroy it, it lives on.
      It is nice to know that those who came from this little corner of the world to glimpse that dream, to protect that flower, are still remembered. Another gem from Loam, of arrezafe.
          "To the memory of the Scottish members of the British Battalion, International Brigade, who fell at Jarama, 1937."

  1. We are heirs to their struggle. They will always be in our memories and in our hearts.

  2. Their memories should be the fuel for our part of that struggle.
