Subject: RE: BS: What have the Welsh ever done for us ?
Bugger ! I forgot the Merthyr rising. And yes Hugill was a sailing instructor at an outeward bound school. On that theme I hasten to mentiuon the Royal National Lifeboat Institution's "Atlantic" Class RIB Inshore rescue boat. Desingned and prototype built at Atlantic College, in the Vale of Glamorgan

And with regard to America - well Click 'Ere Sian, Shame on you, forgetting this thread.

Oh, Yes, and the USA built Hospitals in South Wales, parts of the Caerphilly Miners Hospital are still housed in the brick built wards the US of A errected. And yes many Kids fron London and the Medway Towns were evacuated to South Wales 1939/40.

Hmmmn! Now there's a thought - Is there, should there, be a folk son about the evacuee's. Something for another thread I think.
