706. Welsh Idiosyncrasies - Nickname Series (82)

My grandfather who worked at Navigation colliery, Crumlin, was known as Billo Top Note for his singing (in)ability.  At other times he was Kettlehead because of the way his bald head would steam in cold weather when he removed his cap.  I also have an uncle who was nicknamed Cabbage - I presume after his naivety or 'greenness' at some point in his life.
