A Memory of Abercanaid.
My pal Stanley Ponting lived in Newton Street, Abercanaid. I visited there in 1960 and 1980, and more recently his daughter, after conferring with me, has fulfiulled her long held desire to see where her dad lived during his evacuation in WW2. Other boys including Roy Caterick, Norman Smissen, Ray Kennedy, Roy Partington, Ernest Cakebread and his brother all spent time in the Merthyr Valley. Memories both good and bad flood back to mind.
