Poster, Great Western Railway, Whom do you Serve? 1926, notice to staff from Felix J C Pole, General Manager, urging them not to strike in support of the miners together with NUR statement urging support. Format: double royal. Dimensions: 40 x 25 inches, 1016 x 635mm.

This poster places the arguments of the Great Western Railway against the 1926 General Strike directly opposite those of the National Union of Railwaymen who supported it.

The Great Western Railway reminds its employees that "Great Western men are trusted to be loyal to their conditions of service in the same manner as they expect the Company to carry out their obligations and agreements.

The National Union of Railwaymen asks its members to stand in solidarity with the embattled coal miners, with C T Cramp of the NUR proclaiming "I desire to repeat on behalf of the NUR what I said in yesterday's issue of British Worker: Members of our Union must handle no traffic of any kind, Food-stuffs or otherwise"
