Cyril Carr Dalmaine
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1904
Death: 1986

Jonah Barrington was the pseudonym of Cyril Carr Dalmaine, the radio critic of the Daily Express, a British newspaper, during the Second World War. He studied at Eastbourne College, and graduated from the Royal College of Music. He was Music master at Uppington School, and chorus master to the BBC. He composed chamber music, and transcribed cantatas of Johan Sebastian Bach to piano.
His first used the term "Lord Haw-Haw" to describe a German radio broadcaster; "He speaks English of the haw-haw, damn-it-get-out-of-my-way variety, and his strong suit is gentlemanly indignation. William Joyce "Lord Haw Haw" also wrote and read out over the air with his infamous "Germany calling" catchphrase, which has also come to light, and he became a chief propagandist for the Third Reich after fleeing England just before the Second World War. Joyce was taken back to England and at 39 in January 1946 became the last person in Britain to be hanged for high treason.
