GMB banner at Tolpuddle Festival. Unity is Strength.

July 17th 2016

For more about the day this was taken.
GMB is the General, Municipal and Boiler Makers Union.
The banner here is propped against a hedge while members gather. It will soon be taken into the road to take its place in the procession.
I think I see in the banner . . . Stone Henge (Wiltshire) The White Horse at Westbury (also Wiltshire) Windsor Castle (Berkshire) Brighton Pavilion (Sussex) A mine wheel (representing the Kent coalfields?) Is that Tower Bridge (London) poking up at the back . . . or . . . ? And what about Dorset? Maybe the fields being ploughed? Or the procession of banners itself?
