London under Siege: Churchill and the Anarchists 1911

The London under Siege exhibition commemorated the 100th anniversary of the Siege of Sidney Street and was at the Museum of London Docklands, West India Quay, Canary Wharf, London E14 4AL.  It ran from 18th December 2010 to 10th April 2011.   A vast collection of memorabilia was on display and we produced an enlarged commemorative edition of our magazine, The Cable, to accompany the exhibition.  The magazine can still be purchased at the museum, or is available by post at 4.50 per copy including post and packaging.  To purchase your copy by post please email your order to: magazine
