Our colleagues at the University of Warwick’s Modern Records Centre have been busy. They have completed the digitisation of over 450 documents on the General Strike of May 1926, including TUC reports, bulletins issued by strike committees, and transcripts of BBC radio broadcasts.
A lot of the documents have particular local content, which you can access by finding pins on the interactive map associated with this resource. I had a play with it just now and managed to find the text of a speech about the coal industry by J F Vardy of Stanton Ironworks, delivered at the Welfare Institute at Pleasley on 25 Jul 1925.
The site also has some additional contextual material including a summary of key events before, during and after the strike.
