The Booth brothers John and David - 1954-58

John Booth rang me today after seeing the story in the Brecon and Radnor. Both he and his brother were taken into care from Merthyr Tydfil at the age of 2 years and 4 years and then they went straight into Craig-y-nos where they remained for 4 years.

He remembers being in the Glass Conservatory and the swans on the lake.

Asked about his memory of Dr Huppert he laughed.

"She was a man."

The Booth brothers were eventually adopted by a family in Llangorse and they plan to be at the Reunion on September 9th.
