Last Scots fighter in Spanish civil war dies





The last surviving Scot who fought in the International Brigades during the Spanish Civil War has died.
Stevie Fullarton, who was born in Glasgow, died in a nursing home in Edinburgh. He was 87.

Mr Fullarton went to Spain in 1938 with the democratically elected government forces facing defeat by the fascists of Francisco Franco.

He was wounded during the Battle of the Ebro, the last-ditch offensive by the government forces, but recovered.
