My memories of World Peace Conference

Have your say

With reference to Mary Crane’s requests for memories of the World Peace Conference in 1950.

So far as I am aware a meeting was held in the City Hall and then the conference was transferred to Warsaw.

Along with Chris Law and Tommy Degnan I was delegated to meet leading participants on arrival at the Sheffield Midland Station and take them to Hagenbacks Cafe in Fargate. Following the arrival of participants from Africa I was delegated to take care of them in Bakewell but this never materialised due to the conference in Sheffield being cancelled.

Additionally, I have no recollection of a march taking place in Sheffield but, of course, it may have happened.
