Thread Name: The Jarrow March
Subject: RE: Folklore: I have to ask the Brits-The Jarrow March
There's a nice sculpture depicting a group of Crusaders outside of Morrisons in the Viking Centre in Jarrow. Pub names also remember the March. The govt. of the day didn't give them the time of day when they reached no.10 but it's a testement to the hardships the marchers and their families endured that their efforts are remembered today.
Tommy Armstrong was born in Wood Street, Shotley Bridge and liked a pint by all accounts.
