About: NCB Training film
I have this and many other NCB films on 16mm. I watched 'Pit Incident' just yesterday
I worked underground at Tilmanstone colliery 3033 ft deep only a 3ft coal seam. Happy days.
I worked in Ayrshire I worked in Killoch and Barony and finished with the coal board in Bilston Glen. I travelled I hour 40 mins to get to the face. We were salvaging 5 ton Gullich and Dobson chokes to go to Castlebridge.
hey this was hard work,and i did it for over 30 years,and if the work still going on,iwill be doing all a gain
History now.. very sad.
No pick an shovel!wot a load of bollox!we had advanced road headings with what we called the stables in South Wales!worked on the pick an shovel all day there!an all the hard work was done with the shovel after firing on the tail end too!still,a great film!😀👍
I remember watching this film at mining collage!! memories!ha!👍😀
I worked at Ashington Colliery. When doing my above ground training I saw cupboards full of training films laying about. Those films were not saved.
When I left university in 1968 with a mining degree, my first 6 months was spent shovelling coal on a 'hand filled' face, ie the old cyclical system shown here. A great video.
They need to now do Coal Mining history in schools for the generation who never knew and seen a coal mine as Coal Mining will live for ever in are memories who remember Coaling mining in the UK
Great video. A forgotten history.
I really in joyed this video
