A few recollections from, or about, some of those people who were connected with the Rhydymwyn Valley Works.



Some of these articles are the recollections of the employees, and their relatives, who were connected with the Valley Works in Rhydymwyn until Coronation Year in 1953.
They are an attempt to reflect the lives and times of a generation of people who lived through the war period and told as they saw and remember such times. They should be read as recordings made 60 to 70 years after the events with consideration given of the aged person's sometimes fleeting memories and recollections.
We hope you will enjoy them and understand that they should be read and balanced with other information.
