News: Tyndall Forms Extreme Right Militia

2nd December 1988: BBC News reported that British National Party leader John Tyndall had created an extreme right-wing militia called Spearhead to "protect English society" against the "anarchy sweeping the country". Details of the size of the militia vary from 200 to almost 2,000 with units across the country operating independently and often at the agenda of their own local commander. Spearhead's military impact at this time was extremely varied and the militia gained a reputation as much for committing racially motivated atrocities as it did for military action.
