Welsh Rarebit:
Here’s the first in an occasional series (ie, I might not come up with these that often) of Welsh Rarebits – interesting, unusual, not-a-lot-of-people-know-that style, Wales related titbits (that’s tidbits in the US, I understand).
And, by the way, I use the word ‘interesting’ subjectively.

Number One:
Kenneth More, that most English of actors, famed for roles in 1950s and 1960s classics such as The 39 Steps, Reach For The Sky and Genevieve, was Welsh on his mother’s side.
His maternal grandfather was a solicitor in Cardiff. I learn this from his 1978 autobiography More or Less which for some reason I am reading at the moment.
By the way, his friends called him Ken or Kenny.
