The annual Len Crome memorial lectures and conferences are held in memory of Dr Len Crome. Len went to Spain with the Scottish Ambulance Unit in December 1936, before joining the International Brigades in March 1937. He eventually became the Chief Medical Officer for the Spanish Republic’s 35th Division.
The Len Crome lectures are given by leading historians in their fields from around the world and the initial nine are available in a collected volume, Looking Back at the Spanish Civil War, published by Lawrence & Wishart in 2010.
The 2018 conference in Bristol will examine the efforts in Britain in support of the Spanish Republic and the International Brigades, the ‘Aid-Spain movement’.
