Pantywaun miners in the 1930s.

The miners worked in an open cast mine near Pantywaun. Joseph Jones (my father) is third on the right. He lived at 8 Long Row, Pantywaun. 

He went to work in the mines aged 14 years and stayed there until he joined the Welch Battalion to fight in the Second World War in 1939. 

The first on the left is George Williams; the second on the left is Charlie Jones all from Pantywaun. The fourth person (torn photo) is unknown.
