Bryn, the only surviving child of South Wales coal miner William Little and his wife, Evelyn, volunteered for the army in February 1940 and became a driver in the Royal Army Service Corps. After a time in England during the Battle of Britain, active service took him to front line duties in North Africa with the First Army and, with the 78th Division, to Sicily, Italy, Egypt and Austria. 

He received an immediate - on the field of battle - award of the Military Medal during the battle of Monte Cassino in April 1944. The award recognised his bravery and disregard for his own life while tending the wounded and dying on two particular occasions, despite being under intense fire.

Although still a driver - and only a lance corporal - Bryn found time to take on the role of chaplain's assistant, conducting services for the troops. Towards the end of the war he felt called to enter the full time Baptist ministry and his preliminary studies towards that end were conducted under shellfire.

Leaving the army in 1945, Bryn entered Rawdon Baptist College, Leeds, and - in 1948 - began his pastoral career at Halesowen Baptist Church in Worcestershire. 

Over the years, Bryn Little was a prolific writer and, in his last few years, an award-winning broadcaster on local radio. His six part series, 'One Man's War' with presenter Barry Amis, broadcast on BBC Three Counties Radio, in which Bryn outlined the challenges to, and comfort from his faith during his wartime experiences, won an Andrew Cross religious broadcasting award in 1996.
