The “Winchester 8” were 8 of 10 republicans arrested for car bombings of the Old Bailey and Ministry Of Agriculture in London in March 1973 and, because of the damage caused to the Old Bailey, put on trial at Winchester Crown Court. 8 received life sentences, one got 15 years, and the tenth was released for co-operating. The 8, which included sisters Dolours and Marion Price, and Gerry Kelly, were imprisoned in England and went on hunger strike for political status and to be moved to Northern Ireland (WP | NYTimes).
