Evacuee

A Memory of Brynamman

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.
