In 1965 I met Gaynor Beatrice Jenkins in Ettlingen, Germany. She worked for the Sewing Factory in Llantrisant and was on a work assignment in Ettlingen , Germany.

My first memory of Llantrisant is when I was just becoming 16 and I had decided to hitch hike to Llantrisant to see a girl I had met at the Frasiethorpe Eilm chuch youth camp, which I did and our relationship lasted a few months, I went into the RAF and we drifted apart - young love is such a fickle thing!

This is the Llantrisant of my memory. The Llantrisant I first saw in January 1966. I married Gaynor Beatrice Jenkins, daughter of Winifred and Gordon Jenkins. We were married on September 23rd. 1966. She passed away to cancer on September 6, 2004. I always called her, with deep affection , my Flower of Wales. She was the very beat of my heart and I love and miss her so.............................
