History:

Walter Dent, Canadian in his origins, was one of the veterans of the International Brigades, who served with the MacKenzie-Papineau Battalion. Walter was a member of the Communist Party and when he decided to go to Spain as a volunteer in order to fight against a fascist Spain, he knew that the most common way was through the Party, so he had gone to a Communist-run Travel agency on Bay Street in Toronto and received a boat ticket for Le Havre, France. Once in France, he and the others volunteers that came with him were guided by Communist handlers to the Spanish border and crossed the Pyrenees at night. Dent had fought in the Second World War and earned his share of medals during his service in the Canadian Army.
