Revisiting After 66 Years

A Memory of Brynamman

I was sent by train to Neath (from London during the Blitz) for collection by my grandparents, Richard & Priscilla Phillips. Being only 2 or 3 at the time, I remember the house being to one side of a shop on Mountain Road. I intend to return mid March to revive old memories. I was there for 9 months. Dad (Dewi) lived there from 1912 to 1936 before moving to Watford and then Harlington. He worked for Fairey Aviation repairing Spitfires and Hurricanes at Heston Airfield - now a residential area.
