His grave was rededicated on the 23rd January 2019 at Danygraig cemetery, Swansea 140 years after the battle of Rorke's Drift.
Today (Sunday 24 Feb) Kirsten Orsborn, singer-songwriter embarks on a very long journey to the south Atlantic to the Falkland Islands to entertain the troops and residents there.
The journey starts at Port Talbot and ends in Port Stanley in the Falklands, a distance of 8064 miles. The 18-hour flight which includes a two hour stop at the Ascension Island for refueling will give Kirsten plenty of time to plan her stay on the islands.
Kirsten's last engagement in the UK was held at the Thomas Arms Hotel in Llanelli on Friday evening. Invited guests were treated to super and a performance by Kirsten and her sidekick saxophone player, Steve Sax.
Kirsten with her parents as part of the production team will be on the islands for eight days before returning to the UK.
No work has been carried out on the Kingsway for the last three weeks. But there is light at the end of the road as a new contractor has been found to take over the transformation of The Kingsway in Swansea after the previous firm Dawnus - went into administration.
Swansea council made the site safe and removed non-essential fencing and barriers. They will continue to work on-site until the main contractor takes over.
Swansea Council now hopes work will restart on the £12m transformation of the vital city centre thoroughfare shortly if new contractor Griffiths agrees to take on the project.
The project will also work to the existing budget; they do not anticipate a significant difference between the original total cost and the new cost.
We hope this vital Kingsway re-development is on target for completion this year.
