Temple was a Hauxley man, I believe he was a Duke School boy who went to the pit. When I started in 1958 he was on filling and a union official, he went on to deputy work before Hauxley closed. As I was at Shilbottle and he at Whittle I don't know whether or not he went on to be an overman but he had the headpiece to have gone far.
