British Ephemera & Historical Album of Captain Maule Ramsay (Spy) – Item 92485

Historically important personal albums of newspaper cuttings, letters, etc of Captain Archibald Henry Maule Ramsay, MP for South Middleton. Anti Semitic MP who famously was the only MP to be interned under the Defence Regulations 18B. Most of the members of the British Union of Fascists were held under this law during the war. Ramsay was a veteran army officer of the Great War and later went into Politics as a Scottish Unionist  member of Parliament. From the late 1930s he developed increasingly strident anti semitic  views and in 1940 after his involvement with a suspected spy ring at the United States Embassy he became the only British MP to be interned under Defence Regulation 18B. This massive grouping in two albums includes correspondence sent to him whilst incarcerated in Brixton Prison. He compiled the album and includes his thoughts on the Spanish Civil War and the Jewish people. A very interesting and historical important grouping worthy of further research. Provenance Ex Warner Dailey collection.
