Another Old Stalwart Has Departed

We regret to have to record the loss of another old member of the Party, F. Foan, who died in his sleep at the age of 80. For about thirty years Comrade Foan was a regular contributor lo the columns of the SOCIALIST STANDARD over the initials “F.F.”, and wrote some excellent articles. After a lapse of some years he commenced writing again after the war, his last article appearing only a year or so ago.

He joined the Party in April 1906 and was a very active member of the old Battersea Branch. In the thirties he retired to Southampton, where he died.

Foan was originally a bricklayer, he later joined Fitzgerald as a teacher of building construction at the Battersea Polytechnic.

We send our sincere sympathy to his relatives, and particularly to his daughter, who is a member of the Party and has contributed regularly to our paper during the last few years.
