It's been a long time - 52 years today - but personally I remember it well. Sad

In memory of the 144 - mostly young kids on an ordinary day at school - who died so horribly and unnecessarily that day.

Very sad day indeed, I remember it well.

So many young lives lost that day.

National coal board got away with murder.

R.I.P.

Some years later a prominent local was saying that there are so few engagements, weddings or births. Or if I remember correctly none at all for a time. So sad.

RIP.
