Wednesday 14 February 1973

Snow again in the morning. Very cold. I put on my over-alls & did odd jobs in my cabin first time wearing overalls this year. Gas workers went on strike or a go slow as from midnight Tuesday.


Cabin refers to a purpose-built woodworking cabin that grandad had at his house/bungalow.

The gas workers’ strike he refers to lasted for six weeks until a vote on 24 March when the workers agreed the Gas Corporation’s pay offer. I have not found much online about the strike but there is an article in the Liverpool Echo from 26 March 1973 about the end of strike.
