Highland Moors - comment

The following comment has just been posted on the blog relating to
Highland Moors posted on August 8th 2008.

This is it:

"I was banged up in Highland Moors from some time in 1944 to 1944 (VE day +14 or so). Among those I remember are Bruce Griffiths (Welsh Dictionary compiler), and a friend whom I briefly met at RAF Yatesbury many years later.

I appeared to be the only Welsh speaker there until a chap from Caernarfon appeared, who could not speak a word of English, whereupon I became his official interpreter.
As my father was serving in N. Africa and Italy,and travelling from Blaenau Ffestiniog was difficult in waretime, I only received one lot of visitors in nine months, there now, times were indeed hard. "
