I wonder if you've noticed the thread below --  British Legion 1940's-- it was started by a lady in Kingston Surrey and she mentions a Betty Assender,any relation ?If so, that bike did a lot of miles.  Just a coincidence I hope but that's very near where my family are from (and my father had ginger hair). Shocked

I dislike to discredit a fellow Forum Member, however I think the photo' of Ian(Bronco) Jones family is--, unfortunately a Fake. I saw Ian in the Fancy Dress Shop trying on a false beard and a frock coat, the people behind are from the "Coal House "TV" Series". He paid for thier services by buying them drinks in the Fountain Inn in Blaeanvon, except for the child of course, he just promised  him a few pints when he's older, if I was that kid I wouldn't "hold my breath", Ians not famous for "getting his round in". If you look closely Ians "Greatgrandfather" is wearing a Rolex watch and there is a Ford Focus in the background, and Sky Dishes on most of the houses,and I think I can see Rocke 'canvassing' for support before he goes to the Mersh for a few cheeky vimtos. I'm sorry Ian that I had to expose you so publicly but this Forum is based on truth and integrity!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Mr Monk - Six Bells isn't not my Ward.
The Mersh is....................

This wonderful photograph

A huge thank you Ian for taking the time to add this photo. My grandfather Reginald Assinder is the younger brother of Alice. I would love to know if the young child in the photo is "Bertie". Although my Mum Elizabeth Assender (the name change is because my grandad was born Assinder, but married and died Assender), left Abertillery in around 1940 when her family moved to London and my grandad helped with the digging of the Metropolitan Line. This is the only photo that I have had. Apart from my grandad Reginald Assinder all of my grandparents had passed away many, many years before. My grandmother on the Assinder side was Catherine Assender (m.name Leyshon. Do you have any connection with the family and do you have any further photographs.
But if the answer is no to both questions, I am eternally grateful for the photograph. According to my Mum's memory Edwin the man with the long white beard, had got burnt whilst filling the Davey lamps (his job) in Six Bells Colliery. He had bad scarring and therefore the beard. My Mum had met him as a young child and her memory was that she was a little frightened of him.  I look forward to hearing from you.
