    Women of #coal #mining families, @vsdawson is looking for women who encountered police during the 1984-5 strike. Were you arrested? Charged? What was it like being "policed" on picket lines? Please get in touch if you have a story to share. Woman police officer? You too!

    They were magnificent, not enough recognition in my eyes, Thatcher couldn't hold a candle to any of them.

    One thing you should never ever forget are lessons to be learned from history. No matter what your take on the issues are.

    Fred, our old next door neighbour, was part of the battalion that liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945. The sights he saw there gave him severe nightmares, up to his death in 1993. He'd regularly wake up screaming because of them.

    When there has been a public enquiry and people have gone to prison for Orgreave it’ll be time to think about moving on.

    My grandad who was at Dunkirk and later a POW where he had a couple of fingers chopped off for trying to escape never talked about any of it. It would wake up screaming from nightmares right up to his death. Also called Fred. Post Traumatic stress I guess.

    Yup. Fred wouldn't go into details about the sights he'd seen, even to his wife. I think the army didn't care about such trauma and expected him to simply move on, as he never received any help.

    At least some of the WWI soldiers that were executed for cowardice were thought to be suffering from PTSD. A significant chunk of the homeless people in the UK are ex-forces. Treatment appears to have improved, but many people can't get over what they see or experience in times of extreme stress.

    I took a lad for breakfast last week who had been in Iraq and who is ‘living’ on Fargate in Sheffield. He says that there’s at least half a dozen ex military living on the streets in sheffield. We have moved on but not much.

    The two things are totally separate in my mind. Orgreave has been brushed under the carpet & many of the mining villages have never recovered from Thatcher's policies. The chanting I see as a bit pointless these days, just because most forest fans these days have no memory of it & if you want them to appreciate the effects of the strike there are more mature ways of doing this. That said everyone is entitled to free speech, just to say that because I don't join in the chanting, doesn't mean I feel strongly about the issue.
