Reporting For Duty (2)

The second post in our next little series which relates to a new book we are conducting research on. ‘On the 15th August 1977 a political meeting was held by the National Front at Boulton Road School in Ladywood in connection with a bi-election. Members of the Socialist Workers Party staged a protest demonstration. In the violence that followed fifty-eight of the four hundred West Midlands Police officers on duty were injured. One officer Sue Bailey was hailed as a hero as she protected an injured colleague from missiles as she turned herself into a human shield.’ We are looking for recollections from anyone who was present at this demonstration and also any policing recollections or photographs for the period 1974 to 1999.Bostin Books Bus Card V2
