1926 Strike

A black and white postcard showing a photograph of the Batley Miners’ Distress Fund for Women and Children which was active during the 1926 General Strike. It is believed that the parcels of food were a collection of bread buns to be distributed to the community.

Mr Walter Heylings, who worked as a miner at this time in the Dewsbury area is pictured on the far right, back row.
