My Grandfather Bernard and Uncle Philip Meninsky were War artists and correspondence ....that would be a fascinating subject.
Phillip did sketches of prisoners of war and hid them, l do believe they are in Australia now!!

Miners, please. My tree on my father's side is full of coal and lead miners, with a few mine owners for good measure.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to make suggestions and vote! We've tallied up the votes from here and facebook and the winning occupation was Mining. So, as voted for by you, watch our video about working in the Mines here.

Quite interesting, but may have been more so if the clip had mentioned the role of children and women in mining, with possible inclusion of the use of Pit Ponies.
