Big Komatsu & Cat mining kit in action. (A fitting tribute to a friend)

By Digger Blogger | 17:46 BST, Sunday, 19 August 2012 | View Comments

Here is superb action video featuring large mining equipment that I am dedicating to the memory of one of my Digger Blog readers who has sadly lost his fight for life.

Sad news reached me on Friday evening that Edward Duckworth had passed away after a short illness. Edward, who was 47 years old, had been struck down with the cruel disease CJD and passed away peacefully at 5.15pm on Friday. Edward was a keen plant enthusiast and a massive supporter and contributor to the Digger Blog, I had never met Edward personally, but we had many interesting chats on Facebook about machines and life in general.

I hope you will all join me in sending your deepest sympathies to Edwards wife Wendy and his family at this sad time. I know Edward would love this video as he was very keen on his heavy mining kit.

RIP Edward Duckworth
