The Jones family of Troedyrhiw, whose son Harry drowned whilst salvaging with the Davies fisherfolk, were also to lose another son to tuberculosis. Two other sons were in the army at the time and a third, Thomas, was at sea on the same ship as my grandfather. By 1917, Thomas had joined the R.N.R.and served on H.M.S. Drake. Later in 1930, Thomas, joined by his brother, jumped ship in Australia, and were for a time, looked after by a young couple that had gone from Borth to Melbourne as teachers. Gwen Lloyd, who lives next door at Frondirion, is still mystified sixty years later as to why their parents did not send money for a passage home despite the Jones’ running a successful market garden enterprise at Troedyrhiw.
