  5. I was born in 1952 . My dad was posted down from Scotland and met my mum in Nottingham, he was in the argyle and Sutherland Highlanders, and was away for six years in North Africa and Then Italy ( with leave in between ) as most people say the never speak much about bad experiences . and speaking from my own limited experiences no one really wants to listen for more than a few minutes. when he came back he went down the Clifton Pit. he was very easy going when Clifton closed he moved to cotgrave pit and retired from there. he died in 1995. he was a great sounding board when I was young. he was strict but very fair and hard to anger but god forbid if you did anger him. ps I tried to get a photo downloaded but failed :-(
