President Carter was presented with a miner's flamelamp that was once used in Washington 'F' Colliery. The presentation was made by 12 year old Ian McAree, youngest member of Washington Colliery Welfare Band. Prime Minister James Callaghan and Ernest Armstrong MP look on. In return, the President gave Ian a personally autographed painting of George Washington's home in Vernon.
