D I Page - Railwaymans Pocket Watch.

RMT has come into the possesion of a pocket watch presented to Dunfermline National Union of Railwaymen branch secretary DI Page in 1926. An RMT regional organiser recently found the watch in a second hand market in Cardiff and purchased it on behalf of the union. It is not clear who presented the watch to DI Page 'for services rendered commurative of the General Strike, 1926', or how the item ended up in South Wales.
