About: welsh valleys coal miners video

Well done mate, grandpa, great grandpa, great great grandpa worked at Merthyr vale coilery (Nixon navigation)
1/2 world away & 1/2 lifetime removed from coal-filled mntns of WV, where I was born & raised, I still recall dust-streaked faces of childhood friends' fathers, toiling deep underground all hrs nite/day to house/feed/clothe their families. I recall perpetual struggle 4 decent housing, livable wages, safe working conditions, adequate benefits (esp medical), & to keep their pensions. I also remember poisoned community water-supplies, mass-casualty disasters, & once proud, strong men rendered diseased & feeble, lain in early graves. Regardless many miles/yrs that divide, we've shared heritage. Much respect & good will to u & yrs. SRW in CA, US.
excellently put mate well done respect to you.
