Four images for Blair Peach

Standard

Thanks to friends for sending me the following four images which help to fill in some of the blanks in Blair Peach’s life

The first is a poster for one of the two pickets of the Railway Tavern pub in autumn 1974, after members of the East London association of the NUT discovered that the pub in which they drank after meetings refused to serve black customers.

The second is Peach’s write-up of the campaign for the teachers magazine Rank & File:

The third is Peach (photographed in the top left hand corner) attending a picket of the National Front headquarters which had recently been established in East London.

The fourth is a report of Peach having been attacked and beaten up by a National Front supporter, in 1978, on returning home after work. This was the second time he was attacked and he suffered serious injuries. No-one was ever prosecuted.
