configuration of industrial relations and politics. As the political skies darkened with the wings of chickens coming home to roost there was a dramatic shift in Conservative opinion, a shift not confined to the Conservative Party, that unions, in common with so much else in Britain, required modernisation. This modernisation took the form of advocating change in the unions’ legal framework and the conduct of

This chapter scrutinizes the role played by fellow former combatants in the lives of the research participants after coming home from war. The experiences, as well as the political meaning, of coming home and being a veteran (in the sense of a political identity) are all mediated through the social networks which surround them. This chapter demonstrates what meaning is attached to the network of other veterans and what role these networks play and have played in their lives as understood by the former combatants themselves. These networks

Attached there to a Displaced Persons camp, he had fallen in love with one Moura (Adina Mandlova), whom he erroneously believed to be a princess. When he returns to a post in Germany, he re-meets Moura, who persuades him to go home, urging: ‘Our being separated is a burden to be shared by both of us, and, in sharing it, we cannot ever be separated.’ After more of such talk, he can at last write to Kate: ‘This time, darling, I’m coming home because I want to

Charlotte Yonge and the ‘martial ardour’ of ‘a soldier’s daughter’
Susan Walton

’s fictional exemplars Yonge depicted her first attempts at story writing as ‘perpetual dreams of romance … in which somebody was always being wounded in the Peninsular War and coming home with an arm in a sling’.39 Revering the military spirit of both her father and her uncle, Yonge perceived the perfect temperament to be one that combined contrasting elements: action and restraint, initiative and discipline, fortitude and gentleness. Although based on the moral fibre of soldiers, she believed such qualities were equally suitable for women and girls of all classes as well

happiness of coming home again, it seemed to me, my friends, that there was nothing else I wanted in the whole world! At least, there was just one thing: I had an urgent, tireless, burning desire to work for the good of my native town and its people. For me, Manchester was always ‘home’. I am fortunate that I came back to a place where I still have close family members, old friends as well as new ones. During the years after I left, in 1965, I came home frequently – during my time at university in Birmingham, the dance study/secretarial period in London, and then more

affirmative. Luckily none but “Have you ever been in Prison?” concerned me, which I proudly answered “Yes, for Women Suffrage”. Coming home from Christian Science Church one evening I saw the first Zeppelin over London,19 floating like a huge silvery electric blue cigar, at intervals dropping bombs. I felt a thrill of exultation at my countrymen having created this graceful, majestic thing, and deep revulsion at their prostituting it in the destruction of their fellow creatures,20 which it was brought home to me very forcibly, women possessing political power would never

going coming out and if you stood there you’ll get crushed with the bikes coming out and people coming out. It was just like the Tour de France, everybody was hurtling up the High Street here, getting out on their bikes. (Kevin Riley) Harriet Esham recalls a second-hand account of the lunchtime ‘rush’ and marvels at the mental image it conjures up for her. He said, ‘You wouldn’t dare set foot out of, of the shop when the men were coming home for lunch’, and he said, ‘Anyone on a bike would never fall off’, because, you know, the road was just
