Charles James Thomas
Members will recall that Mr J.Eric Powell contacted the Society some weeks ago regarding Glyncastle colliery winding engine. He stated in his letter that he was investigating the Newport RFC players he were involved in the work and also played a very important part in the founding of Resolven RFC. He has contacted Newport RFC and unearthed the history of Charles James ( Charlie) Thomas who was one of those involved. The picture purporting to be Glyncastle Colliery is incorrect and is actually from Aberaman. Click on the images to enlarge.
Many thanks once again to Eric Powell.
