I wondered if there was anything known about Auchlochan Colliery Rescue Brigade. I think they were one of the pit based units set up in 1912 before the central stations came into play between 1912 and 1918.
I have one of their flame safety lamps stamped "Auchlochan Colly. Rescue Brigade" I believe the regulations required these pit based brigades to have one lamp set aside maintained and available for each member of the pit brigade.
I believe 250 miners underground needed 1 pit brigade, 500 miners underground needed 2, or something like that. I think a brigade was about 15 men.
It would be great to know a bit more.
As a consequence of THE COAL MINES ACT OF 1911 there was a rapid increase in the number of rescue stations.
