Subject: RE: Lyr Req: McAldine's Fusileers
I read that Brian Behan has claimed "McAlpines Fisiliers" as his own.

It is true that Brian worked for McAlpines in the fifties on the "Festival of Britain" and the "Shell Mex" sites were he was a trade union organisor and led a few big strikes.

He wrote a very good book about his experiances in those times called "With Breast Expanded".
