How Most Llangefni Folks Probably Remember How I Looked in 1964
by Gordon Weare
That's me bottom-left, holding the notice 275.
Here I am in late 1964 at HMS Ganges, Suffolk at 15.
I guess it's how my school/class mates remember me. I am now 61 and still fit and athletic (Thank you Nant Y Pandy).
Cyfeillion - I have lived in New Zealand since 1975, I married a New Zealand girl in Edinburgh, Scotland in late 1974. I live just north of Dunedin city, on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand, and very much an Anglesey feel.. rugby, sheep and wild women - What team does she play for?
The spread out village is Warrington in the "Blueskin Bay" area ( On the web ). I have two sons, Reuben 34, and Benjamin 31. My wife Marilyn is six months younger than me and we have 2 grandaughters, Poppy & Georgia and another on the way in September.
My Dad, George passed away in 2007, aged 90, and is buried in Aldershot Military cemetary, Parachute Rgt quater. He was a Naval man.
My Holyhead mother now lives in Hampshire, near my sister Dawn, now retired. My mother is 88 this year.
Nice to hear from Llangefni. It makes those years shrink!
