From your reviews page relating the the 1926 lockout.

Do you have any comments?  

I really enjoyed your review of The 1926 Miners Lockout.
It seems the book is re-writing history at the whim of the author who is tailoring the content to fit in with the pre-defined conclusions. That\'s a shame.

Do you have any comments?  

Just heard that allegedly Hatfield Branch and Kellingley Branch are still having branch meetings even though the collieries closed last year. Also seven of their eight branch officials are now employed at Barnsley head offices. Has anyone else heard this and when we\'re these vacancies advertised?

Releasing a book based on the 1984 miners\' strike on Monday 4th November - the son and grandson of coal miners and coming from an area whose proud coal mining history and heritage is being slowly eroded from memory to be replaced by Macdonald\'s, Asda and Wetherspoons, it\'s good to see people are taking care to remember...
