Badges of honour – mementoes of campaigns gone by, and causes still being fought today
Posted by wcmlibrary on March 17, 2015
We had a visit the other week from Roy Jones, former Morning Star reporter. Roy, also known to his colleagues as Arthur Roy, served as the paper’s industrial reporter from 1982 to 1995, so covered the miners’ strike as well as many other major struggles of the ’80s and ’90s. The Industrial Reporters’ Group of the National Union of Journalists presented him with this display case of badges on his retirement – and he in turn has presented it to us. How many of these do you recognise from your own collection?
