This is a Hand Signed White Card 5.5" x 3.5" by the late Labour Politician dated 14/12/83.
George Alfred Brown, Baron George-Brown, PC (2 September 1914 - 2 June 1985) was a British Labour politician, who served as the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party from 1960 to 1970, and served in a number of positions in the Cabinet, most notably as Foreign Secretary, in the Labour Government of the 1960s. He was a leader of the right-wing element of the Labour Party, and an effective, if aggressive, election campaigner, but was ultimately unable to cope with the pressures of high office without excessive drinking. He was always known as 'George Brown' and for this reason he insisted on combining his first name and surname in his peerage title - so as to be familiarly referred to as 'Lord George-Brown' - which was created on 6 November 1970.
