Memories of Dyfed
As a child I lived in a lovely house called Glanafon next to the old County Stores bakery in St Clears with my mother Anglea and step-dad Malcolm, and my 2 sisters, Rosemarie and Teresa. Unfortunately Teresa passed away over 20 years ago whilst we lived in Wales, but the loving memories of my family and fantastic innocent memories of our childhood and upbringing in St Clears will remain forever in my thoughts and heart. Just to get up on a summer holiday and go fishing on the Dewi or Taf with my mates was one of my summer highlights, to catch fresh sewin or salmon, or to just hop on the bus through Laurgharne and to spend the day at Pendine Sands. Oh, the joy of innocent childhood memories, I wouldn't change a thing. As a young adult I had the pleasure and honour of working for the local authority in St Clears and met and worked with some lovely people whose friendship I will always cherish in my... Read more
Evacuee 1943 to 1957
Yes, me and my brother were evacuees. We came from London by steam train to Carmarthen cattle market in 1943. We were met by a crowd of local people offering to let us stay with them, it was very frighenting, we did not know any body. We had a label on our coat to say who we were, there were four of us, two boys and two girls aged 5 to 10 years old. . Mrs Morris took John and me but she did not have the room for my sisters - my sisters were taken by Mrs Morgan. We found out a couple of days later our sisters were at a farm not far from from us, so we were able to go and see them. We settled... Read more
Memories for Meidrim 1943 and 1957. Evacuee 1943 Yes me and my brother was evacuees from London in 1943. We arrived in Carmarthen and were lead to the cattle market - all we had was a box with a gas mask in it. There was a label on our coat with our name and our address on it . There were lots of other children there too. Some were crying, it was very frighting because we did not know anybody. As I was the eldest I held my brother's and sisters' hand as our mother had told us to . My brother and I were picked out by a lady with gray hair - her name was Mrs Morris. She said she could take my brother and I, but did not have room for my sisters. I said... Read more

RE: My Grandparents
Maldwyn and May John of Rose Cottage, Cwmfelin Mynach, my grandparents on my mother's side, Gwenda Doreen Griffiths, eldest daughter and sister to Eleanor Linda Jones, Maldwyn Lesley John and Maldwyn Brian John. Brian still lives there, runs his own garage (Rose Garage). My memory is of going down there in the summer holidays, playing in the sand outside the front door with cars and lorries when I was 2 years old. I'd spend the day there, in the shade of the tree. Every year for the summer holidays I would be there for the whole holiday, then at the age of 5 my grandad passed away, but I still went down for summer holidays. I remember going to see Glen in the shop, next door to my gran's house, then to see all the relatives who lived down there. I was always in the vestry garden catching grasshoppers in a jar, going to the chapel with my gran when she cleaned, there was so much to do in such... Read more
