Sad news about Jack Jones. His life was amazing, really inspiring stuff. It’s funny to think that it could have been your own granddad who did all that stuff. I spoke to him a couple of times over the years (about pensions) and he was always very approachable. Do they make them like that anymore?
A bit of trivia, when my son was born I joked that he was another soldier in the army of labour. This is actually a reference to something I read that Jack Jones said about his involvement in the labour movement. I’ve Googled around but can’t find it – if anyone knows the original let me know.
