MINE RESCUE COMPETITION – The annual miners' rescue brigade competition was held in the Heriot-Watt College Central Mine Rescue Station, 79 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, on Saturday. The silver challenge cup, presented in 1922 by the Lothians district of the Miners' Welfare Committee, was won this year by the Scottish Oils No. 1 Brigade. Ten brigades from collieries and shale mines in the Lothians area took part, and winners of the individual tests were: - Gallery test, Scottish Oils No 1; reviver test, Easthouses; oral test, Newcraighall. Gold medals for 20 years' service were presented to Thomas Reid and George Gilbert, both of Scottish Oils No.1; to Thomas Couper of Scottish Oils No.5; and to Daniel Marshall, of Gilmerton.
