Gwynfi's a long way off
I was raised in a little village of Aber & Blaengwynfi Mostly in Blaengwynfi ( Pronounced Bly n Gwin Vi ) the village name is derived from the scource of the river and the end of the river as it goes into the river Avon .
It is situated at the top of the Avon valley in west Glamorgan South Wales. I left to join the Royal Navy in 1963 a mear slip of a lad 6stone wet through and even wetter behind the ears. Married Mustertal in 1975 and I left the navy in 1978 after sustaining a broken neck and damaging both knees beyond repair. I Worked for the SOS in Camberwell for a year then in security at Breweries and government laboratories before moving to Lancashire to another security job ( a builders yard) I was then Invalided out of that as my knees couldn't take the constant walking and climbing. Went to University and got enough qualifications in Music to become a teacher of the subject ( brass) until arthritis set in and had to finish that . Since then I have been retired and putting on weight ( as you could see if you met me on Saturday).
Don't know if this is the correct way to introduce oneself but I can but try . If it isn't right then someone will let me know.
