In support of a strike by coal miners over the issue of threatened wage cuts, the Trades Union Congress called a General Strike in early May 1926. The strike only involved certain key industrial sectors (docks, electricity, gas, railways) but, in the face of well-organised government emergency measures and lack of real public support, it collapsed after nine days.

A Temporary Gentleman by H F Maltby Featured Print

A Temporary Gentleman by H F Maltby

Promotional postcard for A Temporary Gentleman by H. F. Maltby. First produced at the Pier Theatre, Brighton, 17th March and Oxford Theatre , 9th June 1919. In August 1914, the officer class in the British army was a small and privileged 鬩te numbering only 15, 000 men. During the course of the war, a further 235, 000 individuals were given either permanent or, more frequently, temporary commissions. The pressing need for an expanded officer corps enabled men from a wider variety of social and educational backgrounds to become 'temporary gentlemen'. The hero was a middle class junior clerk, who thought wrongly that becoming an officer would get him a job after the war. Date: 1919
