Beware of Lard

I found an envelope of old GWR papers at a recent car boot. Accident reports & letters from/to the Great Western Railway regarding staff injuries. Mostly dated about 1927. I’ll scan and post more soon, however this one stuck out. “With regard to injury… in handling lard” . Thankfully it’s not a problem we encounter on today’s railways. I will be donating these to an archive, but passing them by the excellent Railway Work, Life and Death project for their perusal.

Thanks for reading. Check out my other posts on travel, heritage railways and more.
