David Perrott of Abercrave
David was a "plaster bed"patient for two years in 1950. He lived out on the balcony and during the summer he was given goggles to protect his eyes and during the winter he was given ear muffs and vaseline rubbed on his face to protect him from the cold for he lived out on the balcony even in sub-zero temperatures.
He was told that he would never have children and never be able to work. He did both. He lived in Abercrave, only a few miles from Craig-y-nos Castle.
