Pontradawe - a Memory of Cilybebyll.

My father was born in Ynysmeudwy road in 1903, the family should still be around. Wifred Richards was an uncle of mine and was Danny Richards. My memories was that I lived in Clydach for the war years and I remember the two days of the Blitz my time was spent in Ponti with my aunts. I now live in New Zealand but still think about the times in Pontias (we use to call it). The last time I was there was 1980 and I had a drink with Danny Richards in the Cross Keys.
