Evacuated To Wales - a Memory of Abercanaid.
I cannot remember the exact year or town in the Rhondda Valley, Wales that my brother Nick Richardson and I lived. I was only 3 or 4 years old. I have slight memories... of a couple that we lived with..they were fantastic! My father Bill [Taffy] Richardson [Deal Bus Driver] was from Pontygwiath. I had numerous relatives there. Can remember a day Nick and I sat on a hill[?] sensed someone walking towards us, looked over and it was our Mum coming from Deal to see us!!
