Morn­ing light

Halifax Courier - - The First World War Centenary Week By Week Februar -

Many mills in the West Rid­ing had prob­lems with the light­ing re­stric­tions. Start­ing work at 6 o’clock be­came a trial be­cause the Or­der meant the lights could not be lit un­til 6.36 am. Em­ploy­ees have al­ways said they were kept in the dark by man­age­ment - it was cer­tainly true in 1916! It did not con­cern mills in Hal­i­fax as the lo­cal mil­i­tary au­thor­i­ties had made con­ces­sions for light­ing to be used from 6am.
