A student at a mine-mechanisation training school in Sheffield, receives training on a particular type of drilling equipment. The original caption states that the older men at the school are "experienced miners who have come back to school to learn the details of one particular mechanical job - they perhaps only stay a week". The age range of those attending the course is 17 to 38.
