Memories of Brynamman
I was sent by train to Neath (from London during the Blitz) for collection by my grandparents, Richard & Priscilla Phillips.

Spent 4 years in Brynamman as an evacuee. Does anyone remember us? My sister and I stayed with the Pughs in Fairfield house and Thomas' - forgotten address. Would love to hear from anyone. I was then Margaret Grieve. I can remember the lovely school being burnt, the one and only bomb being dropped. Mr and MRS Mountford our headmaster and mistress. Remember going to buy jugs of milk. Picking whin berries, playing up the mountains. Pictures for four pence, and tuppence for sweets. Annual outing when parents visited to Swansea and Mumbles.
I remember every summer visting my grandmother and family on my father's side, going up on the mountain and just having fun up there. To me it is a special place and always will be, even now as a grown women still visting family I still have to go to the mountains.
I lived in Tairgwaith in the early 1980s. I was married to Richard Carlyle Evans, the son of Richard and Lilian Evans. I was born in Cyprus and married to Richard while he was posted with the Air Force to Cyprus. While we were married for a brief time we had a son, he is now 30 years old and we would like to get information in locating Richard. I don't know where else to search for him, so please, if anybody has any advice or information please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
