99 Years

Today marks 99 years since the worst coal mining disaster Britain has seen, on the 14th of October 1913 439 lives were taken when there was a series of explosions that ran through the underground mines at Universal Colliery, Senghenydd. It took weeks to recover the bodies of those men and the entire town spent endless weeks in mourning for their lost loved ones.
Almost a century has now past and we still remember those lives that were so tragically lost that day. In an attempt to keep their memory alive and to remind generations to come here is the short story I wrote about that fateful day.
