Some pics of my Late Fathers items which i helped him find over the years, couple of items i purchased after his death in 2018. My Father was born in Whitehaven and at 16 went to Solway to do his underground training. At 18 he underwent more training and became a face worker down Haig Pit. He left a few years later after a friend was killed and joined the Army. My Family has a long history associated with the coal mines, stretching back several generations in Cumbria and the North East.
Here’s a poem about the closing of Brodsworth Pit in Doncaster , it’s called ‘Gone’ Gone - the darkness and the grime , the heat the dirt and the slime. Gone - the laughter, the mates , and the hot canteen , the showers the lockers and the scrubbing clean. Gone - the dust the bile and the smell that makes you ill, the face the gate and the roof that can kill. Gone - the Union , the strike and the rage , the defeat the humiliation, the wage. Gone - the deputy the Over-man and the Boss , the Union man who was always at a loss. Gone - the certainty ,the dignity and the grit , the friendship, the community, The Pit . Thanks for reading .
