David William Sugg attended Briery Hill school in Ebbw Vale and passed to join the Ebbw Vale technical and mining institute, couldn't say if he actually went there. Merthyr Express 17 June 1939.

He had an elder brother, Arthur John Sugg, born 1917 & possibly a younger sister, born 1930.

Arthur passed in Neath, 1978. He married in Pontypridd, 1942.

There was only one daughter from the marriage. She may still be alive.

Stanley's parents

Wilfred Stanley Thomas married Doris May Dark, Swansea, 1921

Stanley had 2 sisters & possibly a younger brother.

I think his sister, Valerie, b 1930, never married & passed 2003

The other sister, Doris Lillian (Smith), b 1922, passed Swansea, 2000

Too difficult to trace children with Smith & Thomas
