Hi,
My father in law was killed in the Barony mine in 1975.
While visiting the A frame I noticed a token board.
As a surprise for my husband I want to put a plaque up for him in his dad’s memory.
Can u tell me please how I can find out his token number?
I have the order sheet here for the plaque but would like to get the token number.

Thank you

Any information about the Auchlochan Colliery Rescue Brigade Lanarkshire

Hello there,

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.

kind regards,

Gavin Purdon


As a consequence of  THE COAL MINES ACT OF 1911 there was a rapid increase in the number of rescue stations.
