MY sister Pat Shord (nee Fountain) found these photographs and we thought it would be good to see them in the Barry and District News.
One is of a class at Barry Grammar and the other of the Barry Grammar ‘Hornets’ rugby team circa 1957.
In the Hornets photo are a number of boys who are still living and working in Barry. ‘Sid’ Prosser is at Harris Pye Marine; Bob Bubbins is a legend at the Brynhill Golf club for quaffing the ‘Yard of Ale’; Greg Morgan is part of the Morgan dynasty that ran the Pelican and Harbour clubs; Gwynne Shardelow was of Shardelow’s Wine store on Holton Road; and the coach was Hadyn Morris who played for Wales and the British Lions.
I served my apprenticeship at C H Bailey’s shipyard then went to sea before emigrating to South Africa in 1975 where I have lived ever since.
It would be great if anyone recognised themselves and would like to have a chat with me via the e-mail address below.
