Can anyone unscramble the names on this postcard please? The first and third look like Lt Delaray and Sgt Belshes, neither of which give a match on the MICs

Hi Kate,

Could No.1 be Lt. Delainey? No.2 Sgt Jackson....too late for any more squintting through the bottom of the glass :blink:

Raven Hill

F(f)orestfach

West Swansea

As for the first line there are a fair few streetnames prefixed 'Cadle' in the Fforestfach area - maybe a miss-spelling on the part of the sender?
