Dafydd & John Williams Firemen

Photograph of two Caernarfon volunteer firemen taken before the second World War.
They are wearing Patent Leather fire helmets.
They are brothers Dafydd on the left and John Williams who were painters by trade and lived in Assheton Terrace.
They were known by their Caernarfon nicknames of Dafydd and John 'Annie Dora'.
Dafydd has two daughters Sharon and Alvra. Both brothers have passed away now.
At Dafydd's funeral I placed my silver fire helmet on his coffin.
When I joined the fire brigade in 1963 the only difference between my uniform and theirs was the helmet!
