This chapter is the outcome of a conference paper delivered at Special Interest Group session at the British Educational Research Association conference held at the University of Glamorgan in 2005. The other contributors are experts in the field of bilingual education, as are the book's editors. The Bangor Education Transactions series, published bilingually, is recognised in Wales as a leading outlet for research on bilingual education. The chapter, based on detailed and original primary documentary research, was blind peer reviewed by an expert in the history of Welsh medium education as well as by the editors and was revised in the light of further research prior to publication. It is a significant piece of research since explores the development of bilingual education prior to the establishment of designated Welsh medium schools and highlights newly identified links between pre and post war personnel and practice.
