Alan's talk will cover the period from the election of the democratically elected Republican Government in February 1936, the beginning of the fascist coup d’etat on 17/18 July 1936 through to the end of the civil war on 31 March 1939. During the talk he will introduce the men and woman connected to Hampshire who went to support the Government, either at the front line or offering medical aid.
