St Athan mourners plea for ex-Welsh Guard Harold Morgan

A church has launched a social media campaign to track down mourners for the funeral of a former Welsh Guardsman.

Harold Morgan, who was born in Oxford and had served in Egypt, lived in a care home in Barry for 14 years until he died aged 85.

His funeral will be held at St Tathan Church, St Athan, on Thursday and no friends and family had been expected.

But following the appeal, personnel from 1st Battalion Welsh Guards and members from the regimental association will be attending.

Nick Palit reports.
