Harry Secombe visits Craig-y-nos
Many people have told me about Hary Secombe's visit to Craig-y-nos, it may even have been on more than one occasion, so I was delighted to receive this photograph of him.
It was sent in by Betty Jakes ( hope I have got the spelling of your name right Betty) from Llanmadoc, Gower.
He did a pantomine for patients. It is unclear whether this was in the Empire theatre, Swansea and patients were taken there or in the Adelina Patti theatre.
Perhaps someone could clarify this? Afterwards Harry visited all the wards but his wife Myra didnt because she was expecting her first baby.
Betty says she used to go dancing with Harry Secombe's wife.
