Glynne was born in 1916, the son of Alfred and Margaret Davies and he grew up in Sychdyn with his siblings. He had a brother called Emrys (who was tragically killed in a motorbike accident on the Aston Hill, in 1923) and a sister called Mary Elizabeth who was known as Elsie. Glynne was a police officer in the Manchester City force before he joined the army. He married a Nerquis girl, Mair Williams. (Mair was a founding member of the teaching staff of Glanrafon, the Welsh language primary school in Mold). Family members believe that Glynne was involved in the ill fated Dieppe landings in 1942.
Grateful thanks to Glynne’s great nephew, Steve Roberts for information, photographs and memorabilia.
