Return of the British Battalion
"The British Battalion is prepared to carry on the work begun here to ensure that our 500 comrades who sleep forever beneath the Spanish soil shall serve as an example to the entire British people in the struggle against Fascism." Sam Wild
Upon returning to the UK, many of the surviving members of the Battalion embarked on a speaking tour to raise awareness and funds for the Spanish people. It lasted 32 days from 9/1/1939 until 8/2/1939, and took in the length and breadth of the UK.
