Clement Attlee and General Jose Miaja give the Socialist Sal Featured Print

Clement Attlee and General Jose Miaja give the Socialist Sal

Photograph showing Clement Attlee (left), General Jose Miaja (centre with glasses) and Giner de Los Rios giving the Socialist clenched-fist salute from balcony of a government building in Madrid, 1937. Clement Attlee, then leader of the Labour Party in Great Britain, caused something of a stir by visiting the Republican held parts of Spain in 1937. As the British Conservative government was trying to uphold a non-intervention policy with regard to the Spanish Civil War, the arrival of Attlee in the front-line of the conflict caused a certain amount of argument

Lord Burghley engaged to Lady Mary Montagu-Douglas-Scott Featured Print

Lord Burghley engaged to Lady Mary Montagu-Douglas-Scott

David George Brownlow Cecil, 6th Marquess of Exeter (1905 - 1981), Lord Burghley, athlete, sports official and Conservative party politician pictured at the time of his engagement to Lady Mary Montagu-Douglas-Scott (1904-1984). Burghley won a gold medal in the 400 metre hurdles at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics. As an athlete, Burghley was a very keen practitioner who placed matchboxes on hurdles and practised knocking over the matchboxes with his lead foot without touching the hurdle. In 1927, his final year at Magdalene College, Cambridge, he amazed colleagues by sprinting around the Great Court at Trinity College in the time it took the college clock to toll 12 o'clock, inspiring the scene in the film Chariots of Fire (whose character Lord Andrew Lindsay is based upon Burghley) in which Harold Abrahams accomplishes the same feat. Lord Burghley did not allow his name to be used in the film because of the inaccurate historical depiction in the movie. There was never a race upon which Harold Abrahams beat Lord Burghley in this feat as the movie depicts. Burghley is also said to have set another unusual record by racing around the upper promenade deck of the Queen Mary in 57 seconds, dressed in everyday clothes. Burghley later served as president of the Amateur Athletic Association for 40 years, president of the International Amateur Athletic Federation for 30 years and as a member of the International Olympic Committee for 48 years. He was also chairman of the Organising Committee of the 1948 Summer Olympics. Date: 1928
