    Morning Nick and PH

    All ok here - glad that you are both well.

    Today marks the 55th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster.

    I was 8 at the time and I am able to remember this vividly.

    I can recall having a collection in school for the families of the victims and all the boys in the class going up to the teacher to give their donations.

    My late brother in law Dave (he was 20 years older than me) was a miner in one of the pits in Maesteg at the time and he, along with several others, were driven by bus to Aberfan to assist the rescue efforts.

    Dave, unfortunately started suffering with Dementia at 50 years of age and deteriorated progressively for 14 years.

    There were many occasions during those years when he was staring into space that he’d start saying ‘Those children, those poor children, we can’t save them, we can’t help them …..’

    I also remember about 2 or 3 years after the disaster, my parents taking my (younger) sister and me to Aberfan and walking around the cemetery. There was one grave that contained the bodies of a brother and sister who had died in the disaster - the children had the same Christian names as my sister and me …..

    RIP
