LOCAL resident, Mick Manise has recently published this book entitled, ‘Stories from the Great War, Vol. 1, The Pooley Miners’.
The book contains the biographies of the 32 men named on the War Memorial situated on the approach road to Pooley Hall Country Park, Polesworth.
This is the site of the former Pooley Hall Colliery and the 32 men were former employees of that mine who gave their lives during the Great War 1914-1918.
As with all of Mick’s published works, the Royalties will be donated to the Royal British Legion via his branch, Wilnecote and Two Gates.
The book can be easily purchased at Amazon or via my website mickmanisebooks.uk
