Jack Jones

Former union leader and pensioners' activist Jack Jones has died, aged 96.

He was actually from Garston under the bridge and was featured in the local history book - "Over the top from Under the Bridge".

Annoyingly I lent my copy to someone and now can't remember who. I am not sure if this is still in print. The publisher is Countyvise and here is a link to a page on Amazon.

Jack was also a Liverpool City Councillor during the 1930's. Very sad news indeed.

It is very sad. Jack was a good Labour man.
