Your Ref:- HVT/MT/647.
MEDICAL AID FOR SPAIN.
Further to my letter of 10th March, I am writing to advise you that my Council has decided that after the sum of £250 (total) has been sent to you, for Medical Aid for Spain, further amounts received, up to sum of £50 should be ear-marked for a Memorial to Ray Cox, a Southampton lad, who was killed whilst fighting with the International Brigade.
It was agreed that I should write to you and ask your advice as to the form of the Memorial. A member of the Council - Dr. Sakoshansky has suggested (1) a small Pathological Laboratory or (2) an Anaesthetic Apparatus. Will you please consult your Medical Adviser, and let me know whether one of these two suggestions would be of service, or send alternative proposals. We have in mind that the Medical Appliance could be suitably inscribed - "Memorial to Ray Cox (Southampton)".
I may say that we continue to receive subscriptions for Medical Aid, and several events are arranged in support, so that we hope to send the £50 for the Memorial very shortly.
