Scope and content

Illustrated diary, 1981-1984, of Ann Pettitt, peace campaigner and one of the founders of the Greenham Common peace protest (NLW MS 23901iC). The diary describes the peace march from Cardiff to Greenham Common Air Base, August-September 1981 (ff. 1-4), which led to the establishment of the peace camp there, together with a similar march to R.A.F. Brawdy, May 1982 (ff. 11-23 verso), and a ten-day camp at Greenham Common in September 1984 (ff. 23 verso-68).
Also included (NLW MS 23901iiC) is a copy of Pettitt's chapter, 'Ten days at Greenham Common', which was intended for a proposed, but unpublished, anthology of women's writing in Wales (ff. 4-19); and associated correspondence, February-May 1988 (ff. 1-3). The illustrations in NLW MS 23901iC, ff. 29, 32 and 51 are reproduced in Ann Pettitt, Walking to Greenham (Dinas Powys, 2006), pp. 81, 7, 155 respectively.
