Did Joseph Henry Flint (1892 - 1963) Work Down Brinsley Pit

Hello Rosemarie and Fionn, Hope you are both keeping well. Do you know which pit Granddad Flint worked at, I cannot find him on the 1911 census. Pauline has been contacted by the local newspaper. They want to interview her about his life. There is an exhibition at Durban House Eastwood, granddads medals are on show; they are covering the first world war. Any info would be great. Are you living in Scotland now? I am living in New Zealand at the moment; I’m hoping to visit home next year. Will look forward to hearing from you.
