It's coal on ice! This March 1948 edition of Mining Review, the coal industry's monthly cinemagazine, has a wintry feel. As well as a story on emergency measures to keep the nation's fuel supplies moving during freezing weather, it includes a feature on Dunfermline miner Tom Syme, an Olympic ice-hockey hopeful in training at his local skating rink before heading for St Moritz.
