  • BHP Explosion    
    Tuesday, August 02 2011 @ 05:40 PM
    Contributed by: aub

    Making enquiries re an explosion sometime in the mid to late forties. I can vaguely recall my step-father being burnt and hospitalised with severe burns to the then Royal Newcastle Hospital.

    I am sure that my mother told me that it happened at the BHP.

    His name was Arthur Steven WHITE - known as Jack.

    I also recall being picked up from primary school and being taken to visit him.

    Any information regarding this would be very helpful as his youngest daughter was only a baby at the time and would be very appreciative if anyone has any knowledge of this happening.

    Thanking you.

    Regards
