General and Municipal Workers Union Banner - Swindon - Showing one of the chalk horses of Wiltshire - I think Westbury

If I'm not careful, we'll be round to the next Tolpuddle festival before I've posted all the photos I took of the banners in 2016. (Not that I photographed them all; it's a massive event!)

General and Municipal Workers Union (Wiltshire and Swindon).The 'B' is for 'Boiler Makers' but this is for historical reasons - it's really for a much wider group than that.

Here's a link to Wikipedia information about the White Horse carved into the hillside at Westbury in Wiltshire.
