At one stage when Wilf was superintendent of the small rescue station at Brynmenyn, near Bridgend, both Terry and Brian were part time rescue men on the same station, then Wilf retired in 1984. Terry and Brian ended up as full time rescue men for five years. Brian finished at, Laugher, near Swansea before joining the Channel Tunnel rescue team in the early '90s
The above photographs show Wilf with Brian and Terry on a rescue vehicle just after Brian passed his officers exams. Both photographs were taken for the Coal News being that it is a little unusual to have three members of the same family in the same rescue brigade. Brian is tallest of the lot, and since then dad has lost all his hair.
Brian is now a specialist mines rescue consultant.
