Hi Arthur,we meet again.I remember many a time going down the Drift mine.It brings back memories.
I worked at John pit when they drove a connecting tunnel through to Standish Hall Drift mine in 1954.
They took the mines cars away and we installed a conveyor belt in its place, I remember we used to ride up on the belts at the end of the shift. I always tell people that I could not see for 5 mins when we arrived on the surface in the bright sunshine in such a lovely wood
Peter Francis, did you work with the dialers...Bob Dean etc
Hi Arthur, Yes I worked with Bob , and was a friend of his until he sadly died about 6 years ago. I think you worked with George Woosey the electrican . I have many good memories of those early days. Now live year Southampton
