Wythnos 28/Week 28: 9-15 Chwefror/February 1915

[English below]

Mae gŵr o Aberteifi, Preifat Titus Lodwick, yn sôn am ei brofiadau ym mrwydrau Mons, Soissons ac Aisne.  Yn Aberystwyth mae Gwesty’r Queen’s yn cael ‘estyniad amser’ i werthu diod feddwol ar achlysur dawns filwrol ar 10 Chwefror.  Yn olaf, mae’r ‘New Star Shop’ yn hysbysebu gwasanaeth teilwra gan nodi’n falch eu bod wedi cyflenwi mwy o wŷr i’r Rhyfel na’r rhan fwyaf o lefydd eraill – un o flaen y siop, a dau o’r gweithdy.

A Cardigan man, Private Titus Lodwick tells of his experiences in the battles of Mons, Soissons and the Aisne. In Aberystwyth the Queen’s Hotel is granted an ‘Extension of time’ for the sale of alcohol for the occasion of a military dance on the 10 of February. Finally, the ‘New Star Shop’ proudly advertise their tailoring and how they have supplied more men for the War than most places – one man from the shop front, and two from the workroom.
