In addition to a history of UK coal mining, the book contains details of every UK miner awarded the Victoria Cross in World War 1 and World War 2. We are told this is the only place where all 47 are listed in the same place. The book also tells the story of the bronze plaques that are a part of the NMM together with the names of donors [and their messages] that supported the building of the memorial.

The book was written and researched by four CHAPS committee members with help from historians Brian Elliott and Paul Bedford and contains a foreword by CHAPS President Mike Mellor BEM.

The book which costs £10.00 can be purchased from the National Memorial Arboretum or the Museum of Cannock Chase, Hednesford. It can also be purchased from us with the addition of a post and packing charge.
