Remembering Frank Henderson

Though I only saw Frank Henderson speak once (at a memorial meeting to Duncan Hallas if I remember rightly), this blog would like to pay tribute to someone who was a revolutionary socialist in Britain at the cutting edge of the class struggle - mainly at the Longbridge car factory plant in Birmingham - since joining the anti-war Independent Labour Party during the Second World War. His memoir, Life on the Track - an important source on the history of the post-War British working class movement - is reviewed by here by Ian Birchall, here by Roger Cox, and here by the socialist blogger 'Resolute Reader'. Condolences to friends and family.

Edited to add: Frank Henderson (1925-2009) Obituary by Matt Perry

Sad news. Just read Ian Birchall's excellent review of the book, which captures the important qualities in a grassroots revolutionary and working class militant.
