I got a 3 pound cheque for x my

leaflet from General Walker. Quote:

"I would like to emphasise straight away
that... Civil Assistance is in no way
whatsoever anything remotely resembling
a private army,militia or a Para-military
body... Any form of weapon,uniform,head-

aim is to keep the country going in case
of a politically-motivated general strike.
The General refutes the smear that he is
