  2. An' I worked in Bestwood colliery, in the lower seam to my older brother, God rest him.. I remember on one afternoon shift, after coming out the baths, I saw a mate of my brother. He said, quite nonchalantly, "Don't bother waiting for your youth ! He got buried down pit". He neglected to tell me that my brother had been brought out and taken to hospital.
