Syrian war: British volunteers in socialist ‘Bob Crow Brigade’ prepared to die fighting Isis

Exclusive: Members of Kurdish-allied force speak to The Independent as they prepare for new advance

A group of British, Irish and Canadian volunteers fighting in Syria say they are prepared to die in defence of their “revolution” as they prepare to face both Isis and Turkish-backed rebels.

In an exclusive interview with The Independent, members of the socialist Bob Crow Brigade (BCB) said their 40-strong group would battle to “defend the first revolution of the 21st Century” against all enemies.

They came to prominence after posting a photo online showing themselves posing by a wall with a message to Labour leadership contender Owen Smith.
