The sole UK defector out of UK prisoners in the Korean War, I know Condron returned to the UK in 1960, but after that I can't find anthing about him.

Did he remain 'Red' or did he change his spots later in life? Is he still alive? If so he must be in his 80's at least.

All info gladly received!

He died 28 March, 1996.

Looks like some articles written in papers around the time of his death, but I couldn;t find anything online. Example: link

An article from 1960 about his return: link
