I am amazed at just having seen the picture of the ewer. I have an identical one presented to my great grandfather George Frederick Adams and inscribed with identical wording relating to the flooding of the colliery in 1877.
My grandfather was a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers and together with one Thomas Forster Brown wrote a paper "Deep Winning of Coal in South Wales" presented to the Institution on 18th January 1881.
I am not clear as to what part my grandfather may have played in the rescue but if you have any information on this, I would be glad to hear.
Sincerely
Simon N Adams
