I Was Born In Caerphilly In 1938 - a Memory of Caerphilly.
I left Caerphilly in 1955 to join the Royal Airforce. Prior to this I worked for AJ Marshall Wholesale Confectioners in Castle Street. I went to school at The Twyn Secondary Modern as it was then known. I remember coming on leave and having a few pints in the Clives Hotel, on leaving I took the short cut to Nantgarw Road via the Castle fields but unkown to me the moat had been filled so needless to say after running down the slope to the path I ended up in the water. After leaving the RAF I got married and moved to Swansea. I wonder if Brian Uphill and Mike Richardson are still about, we were all very good friends. That's about it for now.
