Advisory Committees; to address difficulties in the increase of output; to convey proposals for the expansion of industrial capacity in the area; and to inform London of any problems with priority of contracts. To assist with these tasks, the Boards were permitted to set up Advisory Panels on an industrial or geographical basis.6 Each area had a Regional Representative, who in the main had an engineering background, and an Area Officer. It took some time to fill all the positions. As far as Northern Ireland was concerned, W. D. Scott, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry

those of (Sir) Pelham Warner, born into a Trinidadian family of prominence and who became one of the great English cricket bosses. 6 The importance of all this was underlined by the involvement of Great Britian’s official regional representatives who, along with donating the important competitive trophies, also promoted the uptake of the game. As elsewhere in Britain’s colonies, the Oxbridge-educated civil servants of

106 the onset of exile the Spanish Federation of Education Workers (FETE), appeared in Argelès camp. Antonio Gardó, who had been a FETE regional representative for Valencia (Valence), along with Miguel Monzó and Miguel Orts of the FUE and a young actress Adela Carreras, provided much of the impetus. As well as their union links, all four had served in an artillery outfit (Reserva General de Artillería) that had crossed the border with much of its equipment.68 This modest beginning led to a veritable plethora of publications and activities at Argelès that was soon

they sit strangely alongside other violent groups mobilised during the 1960s. As with Action Directe (AD), the radicalisation of the CRAV’s methods was a response to adverse Burial or resurrection? 233 external pressure; for the AD the adherence of the French left to the Fifth Republic threatened an abandonment of revolutionary ideals, for the CRAV the adhesion of regional representatives of the PS to central government threatened the abandonment of the ideology of the Défense movement. In both cases the groups ‘turned to terrorism out of weakness and fear of

areas reliant on this industry. Local branches raised this issue from the late 1920s following the launch of the LNU’s Disarmament Campaign. According to the regional representative from Kent, dockyard towns needed ‘most careful handling or great antagonism will be aroused’, whilst a branch Secretary from Sheffield, a major centre of the arms trade, remarked upon how, at meetings addressing the subject of disarmament, ‘we are constantly reminded of the fact that Sheffield must suffer from increased unemployment if any serious reduction of armaments takes place’.84 The

the regional representative of the Miners’ Welfare Fund, Captain Mason, to cut costs by organising a united film booking scheme for Halls and Institutes failed to gain much support.70 Most Institutes were highly independent, and their members cherished (and indeed protected) that independence.71 However, while each Institute was self-governing, as far as film-booking patterns are concerned, similar arrangements were undertaken elsewhere. The minute books of Tredegar Workmen’s Institute, for example, reveal that the committee booked films from a mixture of American

­provided for regional programs, the relationship between the regions and Head Office were not unproblematic. At the beginning of the war, regional representatives showered Head Office with memoranda protesting the lack of regional representation in the programs,52 and intermittently continued to complain about a lack of adequate representation in the Home Service.53 As late as 1943 Percy Edgar, the Midland Regional Director, who had been with the BBC since the beginning, called for more “regional-mindedness” in the program departments in London, complaining “that

The Ministry of Labour’s regional representative was dismissive about meeting this demand, predicting that up to 30 per cent of workers were likely to abscond.140 It proved to an optimistic estimation. French officials in the Gers managed to gather just 85 out of 250 workers, with gendarmes shooting one recalcitrant Spanish refugee in the thigh at Plaisance.141 Further north-east in the Lot, 100 out of 262 workers 178 working in from the margins were missing from the 554th GTE, and only 27 out of 145 could be gathered
