All in a Days Work

By widtink
Moira got me thinking after my last upload, so this is a dedication to all the Miners who died trying to feed their families. Getting near the end of this wee series now Smile

Its images like this Rod that really tell stories simple names on a plaque but put there because a family has suffered the ultimate sacrifice. I recognise some local family names associated with my village in this list, Gourlay, Penman and Shields all families who worked the Wemyss collieries.

For those who don't know WROCHT means worked!

Hope you can end your series on some happiness, for all its hardships there was also some good fun as well.

Yer right there Eric not all doom /gloom by any means the folk loved their communities both inside the pit and above ground. When you work in such dangerous conditions I can imagine the bonds formed being very deep Smile

Well thank you for the translation but I think that was obvious. Imagine those poor miners and what sort of conditions they must have worked in. I think death and injury must have been common place. Very sad to see this type of image, but well done and thank you for your Narrative, fantastic Rod....John

Rather ironic I posted this on the day a certain Lady died Smile She certainly killed off loads of communities round the British isles in her time as PM

A sorrowful image Rod, but one that ties in nicely with the rest of the series.

Rod, pit life was part of my family many moons ago.........very nice to remember a very hard way of life gone and hard as it is for our youngsters trying to struggle there way into the working world, I wonder if they understand the true working foundations of our nation........nice set mate.
