If it was Roger Lewis the former school teacher he moved from Abertillery to the Blackwood area a few years back.

Would anybody know which Abertillery department store was used to teach the Eltham Hill girls along with the Grammar School during the early part of WW2
Looks like there were a few number of evacuee's if they sent 26 teachers with them.
The headmaster at the Grammar School unveiled a plaque at Eltham Hill in 1946.

Hello Stoob,
Hope you are well.
Interesting about the Eltham girls.
Dover Boys' Grammar was evacuated to Ebbw Vale in the war. They shared EV Grammar in shifts. The EV girls were delighted, of course, because Dover Grammar was boys only!!
There are quite a few Dover boys (now, alas, old men!!) still in Ebbw Vale because they married EV girls.
Dover Boys' Grammar thankfully still exists - unlike our valley Grammar schools. Sad.
Anthony

Hi Anthony

The Eltham girls were there from May 1940 until July 1943, they used to publish their exam results in the local South Wales Gazette, there was an article in that paper on 12 April 1946 on the tablet unveiled at Eltham.
Muriel Williams was one of the Eltham girls evacuated to Abertillery and her sister Ruth visited here. Ruth went on to marry Sir Seretse Khama the President of Botswana. Muriel and Ruth were pictured in the South Wales Gazette dated 11 December 1953.
