    Three fishermen remember the fisherman’s strike of 1926 and their role in the dispute including a number of clashes with the police. It is thought that Pool is a reference to Crossens Pool, an area of sand and mud flats in the Ribble estuary off the coast from Marshside. There are also references to the flats, dykes and Crossens and Hesketh Bank, all features of the river estuary.
