The committee

by john ross

This picture was taken during the miners strike I believe, and relates to the Cardenden area - I'm sure it has something to do with the strike committee and the soup kitchens.
I know because my father is front row right Andrew Ross he worked in Bowhill colliery and later Kinglassie and was in the pits for 45 years before retirement he was (rope splicer roadsman shotfirer and deputy and stayed in the jamphlars and cardenden I'm sure it is my gran front row third from the right sadly I don't have any pics to compare just a vague memory of her.
Maybe someone will recognise their parents or grand parents and will comment on it please.
