Original message (posted by PeterP)
Many a time I have been asked if the pits where still open would I still be working there I reply I have pit dust in my blood and after nearly 45yrs working I would still be there because I would not have known anything different in my life(only did just short of 20yrs at the pit) I count myself lucky I have only minor battle scars. A Broken finger and a blue scar on my arm, Two bad knees and slightly deaf but I am still aliveMany an ex-pitman where not so lucky Ill health has blighted many men some who where not old at the time due to the conditions down the mine( dust/heat/water)to name a fewThe government are slowly admitting these where dire conditions to work in and are very slowly compensating ex-pitmen but in most cases it is too little and to late these men are no longer with us or to ill to enjoy their retirement years
