The Bevin Boys monument was officially dedicated in glorious spring sunshine in what had been a long-awaited moment of recognition to the former coal miners, both living and dead. In a touching moment, the Countess tearfully embraced the memorial's designer Harry Parkes, 87, who along with his peers had waited more than 60 years for what they say is long overdue recognition.
