Many thanks to Ian Birchall for sending me Socialist Worker from the week that Peach died. Coverage included an obituary by Dick North, and eye witness reports from Southall, including reports by Amanda Leon who had seen Peach being struck on the head and Martin Gerald who had travelled with him to the demonstration and saw the police charge during which Peach was struck.

North’s obituary also appeared, with some reordering of the text but no significant changes, in the programme for the memorial event to commemorate Peach’s death. Here it is below (again, double-click to enlarge):
