Thread Name: What did you do in the war, Ewan?
Subject: RE: Folklore: What did you do in the war, Ewan?
I am looking at "Journeyman" as I key this in...end of chapter18 "...by 1939 we werebeginning to discuss the possibility of abandoning our amateur status and setting up a full time proffesional theatre company".
Beginning of chapter 19 "The war didn't put an end to our plans....."
So what did he do between 1939-45? As he didn't tell us, is it surprising that all sorts of tales grew to fill the void?
Now don't get me wrong Ewan McColl was, and still is one of my 'heroes'...... warts an all.
