Dylan Thomas and Oswald Mosley

When posh English fascist Oswald Mosley held a rally at the Plaza cinema, Swansea, in July, 1934, it was of cultural significance. For in the audience that day was a certain Dylan Thomas. It’s worth pointing out that the Welsh poet was not there as a supporter of Mosley – in fact, he was very firmly in the anti-fascist camp. The above picture shows Mosley in Swansea.
