As a matter of interest (there is a full story behind it which i wont delve into as i only know bits and iam sure some on here will know more) there is 2 different issues of number 32 one in July 1986 (the bogus issue produced by breakaway group) and one in Sept 1986.

Huh, looks like the Sparrow's Nest has scanned both, one as "32A" and one as "32B". Got a while to go before I reach that, though.

Detailed story, for sure. having close relations with the DAM, having read the internal documents, I'm familiar with the situation. The issue at hand was the then Hull DAM published an unauthorized "DA" issue favorable to CNT-Victoria split from CNT-AIT. These folks later went on to form the current Spanish CGT. DAM withdrew that issue of "DA and published another issue, same number only "A" after number.

Edit: See "50 Years on" for outright support for the "CNT-U" split.: http://www.thesparrowsnest.org.uk/collections/public_archive/10237.pdf
