1948-49, with Mr. Williams and Mr. Lloyd.
Alan Hunt front row right and maybe Derrick Kendrick back row left.

Grammar School Hockey Team 1933.
Standing, Marion Davies, Morfydd Williams, Gwyneth Vaughan, Esther Grennow, Kath Pullen, Madge Rogers and Mary Jones.
Seated, Eileen Davies, Iris Thomas, Gwyneth Freeguard, Lena Giles and Iris Thayer.
Esther Grennow won the Victrix Ludorum trophy 5 years in succession and was obviously the athlete of that decade.

Second year rugby team taken 1958 with Mr Rocky Morris standing alongside. I am third from left front row. Does anyone recognise anyone else, if not Get in touch.

Dear Stoob,
another lovely evocative photo. I wonder where the hockey pitch was?  Did they play on the site in Roseheyworth Road, or did that only come later on?
Mrs Roberts (Yvonne James) was a pupil in the late 40s. I'll ask her in my next letter - she might know! She always greets everyone who remembers her, as both pupil and teacher.

I would have been in that picture, probably at top right.

I remember having to go to the Ebenezer every Sunday, to Sunday school and every Whitsun for the Whit-walks.

Rocky Morris taught my brother, who was 17 years older than I, and then me.  I think he found my brother easier.

According to the BBC your paintings site, either use Abertillery or Arthur Jones as search words.

What year do you suppose this is, Stoob?
I knew an Arthur Jones who lived on Coronation Road, Six Bells. He was the nephew of my godmother, Mrs Lilian Vaughan. Anyhow, he was, I think, secretary of the Old Tylerians. I wonder whether he is the painter? His wife Eileen is now in a home at Cwmtillery.
It's a pretty painting, though the mountain in the background is a bit of artistic licence!

Apparently he has 7 paintings at Abertillery Museum.
St. Peters Blaina is one of them.

Pride of Abertillery education once upon a time.

Yes, Stoob - pride indeed!!
Boys and girls went from Abertillery Grammar School to Oxford, including the late Jeffrey Thomas, MP for the town.
Not sure that the comprehensive schools in the area would now even encourage such applications!!  I shall be pleased to be corrected on this point. Is there a former pupil of Abertillery Comp now studying at Oxford or Cambridge?
An evocative photo, by the way.
Anthony
