Hi Mike,
Thank you for this information. I did have a temporary subscription on the British Newspaper Archive for a short time; and gathered about a dozen or so articles in my initial researches about the 1949 Flooding. But, I must admit, it seems that I missed a lot.
I never came across anything, for example, about donations to the Gloucester Royal Infirmary. And didn't realise that there were several hundred references!
Thank you for drawing my attention to an excellent source for future research. I'd hope to go through it exhaustively.
For now, if there's anything you could recommend about: descriptions of the site, working life of the miners, or photographs. If you could recommend some possible categories/headings/key-search-terms for using the British Newspaper Archive, based on how you achieve such rich results, that would be a great help.
Many thanks,
