It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the untimely passing of our comrade Paul Armstrong from Leeds. A dedicated family man, Paul never wavered in his support for the cause.
Paul was a racial Nationalist from the early 1980’s onwards, attending many meetings, demonstrations and marches. His early years were spent in the National Front, where he made a number of life-long friends among his fellow activists.
The vicious in-fighting between the official NF and the Flag NF in the mid-eighties in his home town sickened Paul, and he was to say many years later that he would never fall out with another Nationalist again simply because they supported a different party.
He was a former organiser of Blood & Honour Yorkshire, a position he excelled at. He was kept busy arranging gigs and the transport to them, often filling more than one coach with eager attendees. Paul also organised many gigs with bands from as far away as Finland, bringing them to perform in Yorkshire, and often having them sleep in his front room if nowhere else was available.
A number of tragic events such as the loss of his son, led to him cutting down on his active support for the cause. He mostly spent his time on his love of darts, playing for his local pub team, and cycling for miles. He still attended meetings when he could, and helped organise a number of events just before lockdown.
Paul was a party animal and would often have us howling with laughter with his antics. He was a good loyal friend who would always have your back. Rest In Peace, brother.
Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
The above tribute was submitted by his close friend and comrade, SAP.
Ich Hatt’ Einen Kameraden
‘I Had A Comrade’ is a traditional German song played at memorials for the fallen. RIP Paul.
