Very few, if any, people ever called him Brynmor. He was always known to family and friends as Bryn.
During the war years (1939 - 1945) pattern making was a reserved job as it was vital for the manufacturing of war equipment. During this time Bryn was on a rota of fire watching on the roofs of factories in Cardiff during the air raids, when not working.
Although he and his parents were Welsh speakers, his wife was not, so they and their children spoke in English. In 1951 they moved to Devon where no Welsh was spoken so the children only used English.
