dated October 10, 1953: Lord Strabolgi Dead

On the 8th in London, the death occurred of Lord Strabolgi (67), a leading Labour Party member of the House of Lords, due to cerebral haemorrhage.

As Lt.Commander Kenworthy, Lord Strabolgi, whose title went back to the fourteenth century, served in World War I as a naval commander. He was one of the early M.P.'s of the Labour movement elected in 1926 after having served in Parliament as a Liberal. From 1938 to 1942, he held office as the Opposition's Chief Whip in the House of Lords. Lord Strabolgi was a particular friend of Indian freedom. Nobody in the Labour Party was more passionately devoted to that cause. Lord Strabolgi was also a writer, and among his many publications was "India, A Warning", in 1931. An informed commentator on naval affairs, he also produced many volumes on developments pertaining to war at sea in the period 1939 to 1945.
