Oh hang on, there is one more tradition, that's to get absolutely smashed blind drunk on a Friday night. That's because tomorrow is half the crews rostered day off. I can hear them screaming over at the wet mess right now. Ah well only 5 more sleeps and I'm on the big bird to Italy.
There aren't many traditions at mine sites, but there is the boot tree. When crew leave site for good (demob) they often leave their boots behind as a momento. They usually leave them hanging in a tree. Every mine has one and ours is no exception.
