Mosley Uses Setup Hitler Formulated

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Sir Oswald Mosley borrowed another page from Adolf Hitler today, announcing that he would form a Black Shirt corps on the lines of the German Chancellor’s Schutz Staffel and a separate political corps.

The Mosley Black Shirts will wear uniforms and badges and, according to the British Fascist chieftain, will preserve “the pure, immutable, fine flame of the original movement.” The political branch will create electoral machinery with the assistance of propaganda by the Black Shirts.
