In 2017 the LGBT Representative Committee commissioned a new banner.
Rather than letting the retiring banner gather moths in a cupboard, the People’s History Museum in Manchester were contacted to see if they would accept it as a donation to their collection.
They were thrilled to accept this as the first banner donated by ASLEF. After restoration the banner flew proudly in the museum’s banner room for many months and remains a part of their archive.
The People’s History Museum is the national museum of democracy, and tells the stories of progressive and socialist history in Britain.
