BRITAIN’S MARTYRED JOHN AMERY
The Ethnic European barely survives on book royalties donated by Michael Walsh and supporters of real news and views. WE AIM to replace victor’s spin with real history, to enlighten, inspire and to educate, and with your help to share our stories as widely as possible.
December 19, 1945, a 33-year old English-born Spanish national was illegally hanged at London’s grim Victorian Wandsworth Prison. It was the end of a martyr’s mortality but the beginning of a legend.
Had Amery, the son of a British government minister, served a prison sentence few would have heard of him. Posterity decided otherwise.
Born March 14, 1912, John Amery was baptised in the crypt of the House of Commons. He was educated at Harrow and Eton and being one of the political elite could look forward to a life of privilege.
John Amery was having none of that. Turning his back on the hedonistic lifestyle of the upper-class Amery first went to France and then in 1936 onward to Spain. There the Englishman fought on the side of the Nationalists against Moscow-backed Republicans. During the Spanish Civil War, John Amery fought on the front-lines with distinction.
In 1943, despairing of Britain’s war against the anti-Soviet Reich, Amery opted to serve Germany. One has to remember that in 1943 Britain had not experienced an elected government for eleven-years. On the other hand, Germany’s National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) had been once elected and twice overwhelmingly endorsed by the German electorate. Unlike the twice-elected Adolf Hitler, Britain’s American by nationality Winston Churchill had never been elected to lead Britain.
John Amery broadcast regularly from Germany as did many Europeans. There was a common theme in all such broadcasts; the desperate need for peace between Germany and the necessity to form an alliance against Bolshevik Occupied Russia. Whilst in Germany John Amery was pivotal in setting up the League of St. George. The League, after the Englishman’s departure for Italy, became the British Free Corps.
By the outbreak of Britain’s alliance with Stalin’s Bolshevik USSR, it is estimated that at least 30 million Russians and Central European Orthodox Christians had been slaughtered, starved or worked to their death by the Bolsheviks. New York banking houses invested heavily in the overthrow of Tsar Nicholas II and government of Imperial Russia (1917 – 1922). From 1922 America and Britain’s industrial corporations and venture capitalists invested in the wealth of Bolshevik occupied Russia and enjoyed access to tens of millions of slaves who Leon Trotsky referred to as ‘White Negroes’.
Following the defeat of Germany by the combined forces of the British, Soviet and American empires, John Amery was transferred in irons to London. The Englishman would have realised that his ‘trial’ was to be no different from the notorious Soviet show trials.
The martyr’s fate was sealed; all that was necessary before his ritual hanging was a little court theatre. Standing in the dock and facing his accusers John Amery proudly accepted all eight charges levelled at him; his ‘trial’ lasted just eight minutes.
Shortly after 9 a.m. on December 19, 1945, the condemned man took his final steps to the prison’s execution chamber. There the young man was pinioned, hooded and placed on the trapdoor. Albert Pierrepoint, Britain’s notorious executioner, pulled the apparatus lever.
When Pierrepoint retired he had taken the lives of 680 condemned prisoners, more victims than were taken by many of Stalin’s henchmen. Of those hanged Albert Pierrepoint executed over 200 German prisoners-of-war. The hangman described John Amery as ‘the bravest man I ever met.’
Any hope that in doing so John Amery’s memory was sent to oblivion was a fond hope. John Amery is today far better recognised and honoured, certainly better remembered than any who betrayed him and sent him to the gallows.
NOTE: When the wife of The Ethnic European’s publishers says she will clean the homes of others to help make ends meet the end game has been reached. I now return to commercial writing, which does pay. Good wishes for the future. ~ Michael Walsh.
Clearly, Leo Amery, John’s father, was in no doubt as to his son’s nobility and martyrdom. It must have occurred to him that his son was far more deserving of the nobleman accolade than any of the parasites perched along with the seating of England’s second chamber. Afterwards, his father wrote the condemned martyr’s epitaph.
EPITAPH TO JOHN AMERY
At end of wayward days, he found a cause,
‘Twas not his country’s ~ only time can tell,
If that defiance of our ancient laws,
Was treason or foreknowledge. He sleeps well.
