Marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for ETOL.


I have just read Lee Humber’s article A powerful combination (September SR) and wondered if you could tell me how many policemen or soldiers were used in the miners’ strike of 1984–85? I also wondered if you knew how many Allied soldiers there were at the battle of El Alamein – it might be a good comparison. It might put the oppression exercise by the government into perspective.
