John `Miles’ (Maurice) Carpenter
In the late 1940s and early 1950s, he provided lectures at the post-war LCC council estate of South Oxhey, midway between Harrow and Watford. An LCC estate, it was then perceived as a left-wing hot-spot and was known in the local paper as `cockney utopia’ and 'little Moscow'! The Communist Party and YCL held many meetings there in early 1950s that attracted large numbers.
