Memories of Rhosneigr

Ty Croes Thunderbird Guys

As a young REME corporal in 65, stationed at Ty Croes with the RA, we spent many an hour at the Bay Hotel bar. We managed to walk seaside over rocks in the dark to the Hotel successfully most evenings. Spent my 21st birthday there with my REME and RA friends. Got totally sloshed. Miss the place. I still go there from California every so often. Love Rhosneigr.

I am Delphine Chapple's sister and I lived in Rhosneigr for all my years at Holyhead Grammar School.  The walk or bike ride to the station was indeed more than any young person would contemplate these days.  With reference to Nicholas Farmer's comment above, if I remember ...Read full memory
