The Diary in March

The Coal Strike - and Suffragette activity - dominates the month.

March 1st –
8th

The Coal Strike is on everyone’s lips, and Wynne is horrified
to see the damage done to London by the Suffragettes. Her holiday
is over and she returns to Farnham.

March 9th –
16th

The Coal Strike continues, delaying trains, causing prices to
rise and bringing the economy to a halt. Wynne resumes her duties
– Mothers meetings, District visits and endless committees….


March 17th – 23rd

Herbert’s birthday remembered with joy, Committees
commemorated with hatred, the Coal Strike continues and Wynne and
Herbert brave the railways to go and inspect a school for their
son.

March 24th – 31st

Monday chores, and Mother comes to stay, but plans
for Easter abandoned. The Coal Strike finally comes to an end, and a new
Minimum Wage law is passed…but there is more trouble ahead!
