“God Bless the Working Man” was inspired by the story of The Stanrigg Pit Disaster
in Plains near Airdrie .

Nineteen men and boys were killed at the coal pit when it was overwhelmed by an inrush of peat
on the morning of July 9 1918 .

They included eight teenagers ( Two of which were 14 years old ) two sets of fathers and sons ,
three brothers and three brothers-in-law

Eleven of the bodies were never recovered from the colliery site, near Plains .
