School Photographs


This is a photograph of one of the forms that began at school in 1919.
We do not know in what year the picture was taken.

from David Jones

1919 entry form

Front Row : Fourth from the left Trefor Jones, in the centre Mr E. Ogwen Williams (form master)

2nd Row : 2nd from right Teddy Jenkins

Subsequently Gethin, in the front row, was told off by Mr Ogwen Williams for having a ‘comic’ in his hand !

Also in the picture, somewhere, is R. Colin Knight of Gorphwysfa, Richmond Terrace, Abernant. He was the son of the dentist Frank Knight.
Later in life in 1958, as Dr. R.C. Knight, senior principal scientific officer in the MoD, he was awarded the OBE for his services in the scientific field.

The photograph was sent in by the geneticist, emeritus Professor David Jones, son of the late Dr Trefor Jones.
