  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.

Its funny isnt it that all that important then was a steady job and a good wage, although i am close to retirement If i have an interview for a job, people ( usually people who look to be 13 years old ) ask me what my ambitions are or where do i see myself in 5 years time ??? when all i want is a job lol. the world has gone slightly mad with HR people .
  19. i worked there or rather i went there, for about 6 years 1969 to 1976 and aound the railway side of it there was a sign fro the second wqorld war that said warning electrified fence, anyone who worked there will remember signing the offical secrets act , and a list of eastern block countires you had to seek permission to go to. The money was good but I was a hopless fitter I had no ambition to spend fifty years there.
