"I’ve always liked the description of Brits etc who fought Spain as “premature anti-fascists” "

Some British people went to fight for General Franco's insurgents (viz the fascists) trying to overthrow the legitimate government. One of the plot twists in Muriel Spark's "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" is that she was preaching to her crème de la crème that they should go and help General Franco. IIRC one girl did because she knew her brother was a volunteer there - but it turned out he was fighting against Franco.
