A receipt issued to Fred Marsh for a loan of £8 in February 1927. The loan was issued by the Guardians of the Poor of the Wakefield Union following the 1926 strike. The loan was then paid off at a shilling a week, which is reflected in his pay packets.
Fred Marsh worked as the lamp man for Robert Holliday & Sons at a pit in East Ardsley, Leeds. He worked in the lamp room for his whole mining career due to an accident he had playing football as a child. He worked until he was in his 70s.
