1 Sellwood, A.V. Police Strike - 1919
London W.H. Allen 1978 0491021534 / 9780491021531 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A near Fine unmarked copy with near Fine complete dustjacket. The author brings to life, through the eyes of a handful of policemen who outlasted the crisis, the savage and agonising days in the wake of the First World War, when there was the only national police strike in British history. Smarting under grievances concerning pay and conditions and resentful of of the Government's indifference to their plight, they demanded the right to belong to a union. Shops and and warehouses were looted, a distillery was gutted and drunken mobs led by criminals and agitators went on a violent rampage with the army moving in to restore law and order. **** NOT EX LIB ****
