“HELLO SUPPLY GATE, HELLO SUPPLY GATE.” Pit talk, not for those of a nervous disposition!

“Hello Supply Gate, hellow Supply Gate …”

 

“Hello Supply gate” Hello Supply gate” “come in supply gate”

“Hello what do you want now”.

“Put twelve split bars on and 5 dozen chock nog’s we got some breakdown”.

*HOW MANY!!!!? YOU DO KNOW THEY ARE A HUNDRED YARDS DOWN THE GATE DON’T YOU?”

“Look if you don’t want to carry them come down here and timber this hole up and I will carry the timber for you”.

F**K OFF.

“Thought so”

Eric Eaton says, “I wonder how many conversations like this happened, in most pits I would think quite a lot!!”

    “Hello tailgate. Put two cans of gear oil on the chain.” “Hello tailgate, where’s that oil for the machine?” ” I tipped two cans on the chain half an hour since ”
    Thus “Toucan” was born!
