Armistice Day and Empire Day

. But, significantly, this was also the first important occasion to be broadcast to the whole Empire by the new high-power short-wave transmitter at Chelmsford. The motive of the Daily Express in sponsoring the Festival was ‘the necessity for renewing that comradeship that existed during the war and to remind the British Empire of the unpaid debt to those men still unplaced in civil life who served

interaction with groups that are looking to recruit the disaffected and coax or cajole them towards violent acts. For UK policymakers this general academic approach has been tailored into a model known as Extremism Risk Guidance 22+ (ERG22+), which identifies twenty-two risk factors, including the need for excitement, comradeship and adventure, over-identification with a group or cause, dehumanising the enemy, and relevant skills and access to criminal networks. At the heart of ERG22+ is the idea that people, or perhaps more accurately certain people or groups, are

of duty in Vietnam, or is transferred abruptly to another theatre of war. Throughout our discussion we find that the most important source of coping is often the support of peers; an acknowledgement of shared pain becomes crucial for emotional survival, as we see in the very different experiences of Brenda McBryde, nursing in the Second World War, and Sergeant Schacht, a medic in Afghanistan. Such unspoken but tacit understanding is an essential element in the comradeship forged out of wartime hardship. Whether or not these strategies aid long-term resilience is

expenses to go to America, to which the Home Secretary, after more bombardments by letters from myself and friends, consented. What a wretched, anxious, harassing time I had, and I was only one of thousands during the war, going through similar hell through no fault of their own. Though the temporary official representative of the “British Lion” tried his best to crush a defenceless “Mouse”, many of his spiritual units sustained and supported her. It is impossible to express my appreciation of the true, helpful comradeship of all who made life worth living during those

/01/2020 13:18 Conclusion Like political theorist Zillah Eisenstein, I also wonder about the distinction between being an ally and a comrade. Standing with more marginalised women is crucial. But for Eisenstein, allyship means supporting a struggle but not being in or of it, while comradeship implies we are all in this together.1 Eisenstein’s definition of allyship reminds me of the performative outrage of whiteness. To become comrades, by her definition, we would need to spend less time in outrage and more time loosening the knots of political whiteness in ourselves and

allegiance to Emmeline Pankhurst’s recently formed WSPU: ‘I had found comradeship of some sort with men … [but] I had not found what I met on the threshold of this young, vigorous union of hearts’.6 What helped change her mind? Probably Keir Hardie’s own women’s suffrage commitment and, through her local Guardian experience, what she saw of John Burns and his Tammany Hall electoral domination of Battersea – from which women were excluded. John Burns was born in 1858 in Vauxhall, south London, into just such over-­ crowded slum housing that Charlotte had selected as her

This new humanity and new identity are a consequence of the armed struggle and the spirit of comradeship it cultivated among the people-in-arms. 26 Recalling Fanon

‘fundamental change in the orientation of women toward men which acquires its basic tone from concerns of equality and comradeship’. 9 Young women no longer saw the necessity for a separate women’s movement. Women were able to take advantage of the employment and professional opportunities that the Weimar Republic was making accessible because they were able to control their fertility. Contraceptive advice became more widespread, and the use of contraception to limit family size became accepted as couples sought to ensure a better future for their children. Even in

Brothers appear as an ‘absent present’ in the historiography of war. Possibly the very prevalence of fraternal relationships has made them largely invisible, ‘hidden’ in plain sight. Despite insightful studies dedicated to sibling relationships, there are surprising omissions in histories of families, masculinities and wartime. Privileging the lateral ties of the ‘brotherhood of the trenches’ has led to the presence and significance of real-life brothers being overlooked. The all-embracing concept of military comradeship obscured not only differences in class
