The banner of Ollerton Branch
Banners of the Nottinghamshire Area of the NUM
The banner was designed by Lea Jackson and painted by Carla Jamison in 1984 and is 196 cm wide and 236 cm high. Stan Crawford sewed the banner together and made the poles. It replaced the original stolen in 1984 and was funded through donations from trade unions.
The So Few So Strong group of pickets were sustained by the women’s support groups and Norwich Miners’ Support group, acknowledged on the rear. The banner also commemorates Davey Jones, Frickley NUM, who died on the picket line at Ollerton Colliery on 15th March 1984.
