Hi Kirsty, read above message, we'll see if we can come up with something, it might be George but don't hold your breath, things get confused when you're young. He would be your great grandfather anyway.
Hi Lynda and KMHunt. Nans husband was called Alan Jenkins, and if you remember, he had a wicked moustache, one of those curly wurly handlebar ones, he certainly looked the part. ) I have a photo of them in the doorway of St. Johns, after they got married, I'll try and dig it out.
Hi..I have come across this site whilst reading my Great Uncle Reggie's book "The Town that died" & trying to locate where Horse St was I now know it no longer exists.. my Nan was Myra Lee & my Dad is Meurig..it has been lovely to read about my Great Nan Cassie I remember her when I was little..love reading about my family's history.
Hi, i've just come accross this site via another.My mother was evacuated to Horse Street in the early 40's.The lady she lived with was a Mrs Cassie Lee who was married to a chinese gentleman and had children Myra and Reggie.I believe Reggie Lee wrote a book about the area .My mother learned to eat with chopsticks at the age of five!.
Many years later (early 70's)I joined the WRAF and was friendly with a girl from M/T,her name was Lorraine-Taffy-Morgan.I visited Taf's home once when we were on leave and was completely unaware that it was the same street that my mother had been evacuated to all those years ago--yes Horse Street!.I would have loved to have met Mrs Lee and heard her memories of my mother and gran.
All I remember of my one brief visit is -lots of hills.lol--going to the local pub which I seem to remember had palm tree wallpaper(or tropical design)?,last but not least the masses of food Taf's mother laid on for our tea--plates of roast beef and ham and home made cakes.Happy days.
Lorraine and I used to be close friends number 10 Horse st. I spent Christmas 71 there when we were both in the WRAF
