Ann Harris - 1944

Following the story in the Brecon and Radnor this week Stephen Parle of Merthry Tydfil contacted me to say that his mother, Ann Harris was in Craig-y-nos as a nine year old in 1944.

He says she talked little about her time there except to say that she was very proud of the fact that she passed her 11+ and attributed this to the daily letter writing to her parents during her year and a half in Craig-y-nos.

He will be going to the photographic exhibition in The Welfare Hall, Ystradgylais of "The Children of Craig-y-nos" when it opens on September 7th.
