Memories of the Pirate Post
The days of the 1971 postal strike and the local pirate post are recalled by Diss Museum’s latest acquisition.
Mayor Graham Minshull brought in a last day cover that a local woman was offering for £20.
The pirate post was run by Hugh Bardwell from his house at 3 Church Street from January to March 1971. Museum manager Basil Abbott said, “This is a quirky piece of local history that is worth conserving.”
