|Covid-19|Gower by-election, 1982 Wikipedia
The Gower by-election of 16 September 1982 was held after the death of Labour Member of Parliament (MP) Ifor Davies on 6 June 1982. The seat was held by Labour in the by-election.
Amongst the candidates was David Burns who at the time was being held on remand over charges relating to the bombing of a British Army recruitment office in Pontypandy. A self-declared member of the 'Worker's Army for a Welsh Republic', Burns was ultimately released in 1983 after neither of the two charges were made to stand up.
