Yeah, I know of the name Kadansky in Ashington and think like the majority of Poles that joined the community and pits that they were easily accepted by being exceptional worker's. Polish surnames in the community I've heard are, Mielnik, Kadansky, Lech, Czezhepok etc the name spellings may not be entirely accurate and I'm sure there are many more.
I never ventured into mining, choosing to go into Oil and Gas. My father was a Woodhorn Colliery man working at the pit from 14 putting tokens on tubs, then apprentice fitter/turner until 1971 where he left to do his own thing.
The jars have grand transfers and the machined piece is very good indeed.
My dad told me of a woodhorn turner that made watch winder's on a 30 Ft whitworth lathe, quite an achievement.
