I see from the WCH account that today is a proper historical Geordie anarchist anniversary: https://twitter.com/wrkclasshistory/status/1116335147526295553

Thanks for that tyneside anarchist. I first met Ewan through the student movement, likewise he then became a dear friend of mine. I'll miss him, as will many others.

Anyone know anything about Yankee Jim Roberts, former Wobbly and "Geordie miner" but possibly originally from Kentucky? He's mentioned in P. Wood's book about the folk-singing Elliott mining family of Birtley as being a friend of theirs and a political influence. According to the book he'd returned to the UK after he'd "been chased out of the USA for his politics" and worked alongside the Elliotts at the local pit.

OK, thanks. Roberts seems a very obscure, likely interesting, character.
