Miners Lamp

The sketch above is a quintessential icon of Wales, a miner’s lamp. This one we used on our boat and was actually stolen in the last break in on the boat.

The mining industry was a big employer and the men working in it were incredibly hard and deserved every penny they got. I have been down on the coalface of a working mine and know how incredibly difficult the conditions are.

We had a family evening last night after I got back from watching the Scarlets beat Leicester.
I have to do some more posters today for the next exhibition.
