I wonder if you or any of your contacts can provide any details of a man who I am researching or images of Doncaster Station.
He was Thomas H Linley and was at Doncaster Station and was part of the MRS for at least 10 years as he received the NCB Mines Rescue Service 10 Year Silver Service medal. It would be helpful to know which years he was involved. He died in June 1967 age 55.
If anyone can provide any information and any images of either him or Doncaster Station I would be very grateful
Thomas H Linley received the Silver Medal for 10 years Service.
Unfortunate that he died at only 55 years of age in 1967.
If he retired from the Rescue Service he would have been 45 as that was the age when it was thought that a man's strength etc for that type of strenuous job was at an apex and would then begin to deteriorate. That would make the years of Service 1947 to 1957.
In the 1990s it was realised that the age to retire at 45 could be wrong and men were then allowed to carry on providing of course that they passed the rigorous yearly physical examination.
Trusting this will assist you with your research.
