Malcolm Brinley Jones, brick-layer and projectionist of Llantwit Road, Neath, shot family footage and dramas involving his friends in his spare time. His logo and the title cards for his productions were beautifully painted by 'Haydn' (i.e. Haydn Ford), a local artist/cartoonist. This film is a war-time drama, Mr Jones’ post-war commemoration of the air raids that people endured and made in homage to those “who gave their lives so that you and I could go on living”.
