Ernest J Rollings MC, soldier and policeman. Ernest James Rollings MC served with the Royal Tank Corps in the First World War. During the summer of 1918 he gathered important documents from the German headquarters at Framerville, northern France. This action was credited with securing a swifter end to the conflict than would otherwise have been the case. Having joined the Glamorgan Constabulary in 1913, he was a policeman in Neath after the War and died in 1966, aged 73. He was presented with the freedom of the borough of Neath on 20 January 1932.
