Always in the forefront of the rescue - the miners.
They work until they drop.


They are too young for the full impact of the disaster to have sunk in. But they are not too young to do the men's work, helping to bring some order again to the devastated streets, so that Aberfan can live again.


Lying pitifully small on a stretcher, the blanket covered body of a child victim is carried by weary policemen to a chapel for identification by grieving relatives.


She is old enough and wise enough fully to understand the horror of the tragedy that has struck her village. She weeps for the children who will play no more in Aberfan, comforted by a Salvation Army worker.
