The “Introduction” sets up the issues for this work—the modern image of the General Strike volunteers, the history of the strike and its socio-economic roots in World War I. It also frames the behaviour of the volunteers with their social history, providing background and analysis of middle and upper-class leisure and play traditions.

Keywords:   Volunteers, World War I, General Strike, Play traditions, Memory, Folklore
