I served my time at Wardley Colliery, as did board regular Mike Lynch. I have been in contact with Jimmy Carrol another fellow apprentice, who was Manager of Pelaw Shirt Factory over 40 years. Jimmy told another fellow apprentice, Ian Greeves from Jarrow about our message board and the websites, so Ian sent me a photo from when he was on a Training Course at Harton Colliery. I sent it to the Gazette and one of the lads on the photo, Colin Taylor, comtacted Peter French asking for Ian's phone number as they havent seen each other for 50 yrs.Peter asked me to help so to cut a long story short Ian & Colin are meeting up tonight. |
