My father Dennis Mutton from Redditch and my mother Hilda Llwellyn from Clydach met during the war whilst both being posted to Senny Bridge Army Camp. They married in 1944 but within a fortnight my father was sent to the Far East not to return until 1946. My parents couldn’t of wasted much time as I came along nine months later in January 1947. I suppose this fact allowed them to have a prefab in Fforestfach at 9, Llanelli Place, I think the name was later changed to Port Talbot Place. Being a toolmaker before the war my father was able to gain employment at Mettoy so I was never short of toys. We lived there for four years and I can still remember my time there as being very happy. In 1951 we moved up to Redditch to live yet again in a prefab at 7, Crabbs Cross lane and I have lived in this area ever since. Michael Mutton
