Shotfirer

After a hole has been drilled a shotfirer is seen charging the hole with an explosive from the wooden case the second miner is holding. The miners are wearing safety helmets, with headlamp fed from the battery pack on their hips, we are now reliably informed that the scene was from North Skelton mine in the 1950s.
