A sad story ...

The attached is a 1935/36 photo of Port Talbot Eastern Schools rugby team.

The bottom right, alongside Gerwyn Williams who became Wales full back in later life,
is my uncle Bernard Evans who lived in Margam

Later in 1936 he went to the 'Sec' ...later Duffryn Grammar School, where he broke his leg aged 12 in a rugby match and died soon after in hospital from septacaemia.

We've had this photo in the family but not with the names on it (my wife came across it on Facebook from the Port Talbot Historical Society excerpt and we are following that up). I thought that I'd fly a kite and ask on here if anybody might have some further reference information. There's common Welsh surnames there but there are some different...so who knows.

Any additional info would be gratefully received.

Looks a lot like Wales in the 1930's...all white, all undernourished and very few smiled, as we had nothing to smile about.

The southern English were quite content, nevertheless.. ;)
