    Default Subordinators and relative pronouns

    I am doing my master in Applied Linguistics and I am having troubles trying to identify which realtive pronoun or subordinator has to be used in:

    My father could holdhis own with anyone down the mines at any job, which it was a pleasure when I followed to think of a history like that (as quoted in Freeborn 1995:224).

    Could you help me please?

    My father could hold his own with anyone down the mines at any job,

    which it was a pleasure when I followed to think of a history like that

    Why is this "it" there?

    My father could hold his own with anyone down the mines at any job (main thought)

    which was a pleasure when I followed to think of a history like that
    means: that historical fact was a pleasure to think of later, when I followed in the same line of work.
