Militant on Merseyside (no, not that one…)

In 1939 supporters of the Militant Labour League on Merseyside started a bulletin as a supplement to the monthly Militant newspaper

It is likely this was the work of the former ILP Trotskyists around Don James, Albert Houghton, Bessie Collins and Henry Cund…

The secretary of Merseyside MLL is E. Brewer.

We have three issues of the Merseyside Bulletin, a duplicated two sided single sheet, for April, May and June 1939. We do not have the first issue, presumably March 1939 and we do not know how many issues followed number 4.

Did the Liverpool comrades ever achieve their goal of selling 1000 copies a month of Militant?
