The Kinmel Camp riots of 1919

An interesting story about the Kinmel Camp Riots of 1919 has appeared on the BBC Wales History  website. Click HERE  read.
This is a Modern Conflict Archaeology  story about how unrest lead to a riot within  a transit  camp due to the concerns of Canadian soldiers largely being ignored by the officers.
The article was written by Phil Carradice who "is a broadcaster, writer and poet. His blog posts provide a distinctly Welsh perspective on major events in world history, as well as revealing some little-known events from the Welsh past." Someone who's posts  I shall be following in the future.
