Jim Morton was a Communist Party member from Taylorstown, Rhondda, in south Wales. He knew Harry Pollitt from his earliest visits to the Rhondda in the nineteen twenties.
"He came to our house for tea....Harry had a smashing way with youngsters - he was always pulling my leg and kept it up even when I was a grown man.” On the occasion of Harry’s death in 1960, Morton stated: “To us in the Rhondda, Harry will never die. This great fighter will live in our memories for all time, because he was a special sort of man.”
