H.Adi@mdx.ac.uk I'm writing an entry for the New Dictionary of National Biography in the UK. The editors want to include African, Asian and Caribbean figures who may have been neglected in the past. Desmond Buckle fits the criteria as probably the first African member of the British CP, the editor of the Party's Africa Newsletter, and for many years also a regular contributor to African Communist. Although he is an excellent subject, information is hard to find and this has prompted my enquiries. It would be especially useful to have any information about his international activities, but at this stage it would be good to receive any information at all.
