Wythnos/Week 42: 18-24 Mai/May 1915

[English below]

Clawr Y Wawr – cylchgrawn Coleg Prifysgol Cymru Aberystwyth. Ynddo ceir y traethawd ‘Ar Gadfaes Ewrob’ gan Sarnicol yn disgrifio ymweliad â Gwlad Belg ac effaith y rhyfel,-‘a’r trigolion llygatlas, hapus yn grwydriaid di-ymgeledd neu’n gorwedd yn farw dan y dywarchen driniasant mor ddiwyd yn nyddiau heddwch a bywyd’.

Lladdwyd James Alexander Logan Stewart o Alltyrodyn ym mhrwydr Frezenberg a chollwyd 1502 enaid pan suddwyd y Lusitania.

Hysbyseb yn annog dynion i listio ac i ymladd dros eu gwlad a’u Brenin.

‘Ar Gadfaes Ewrob’ [‘On Europe’s Battlefield’] is from Y Wawr, University College of Wales Aberystwyth magazine, issue 2, Spring 1915. The attachment shows the front page of an 8 page essay by Sarnicol describing his experience of visiting Belgium and the changes brought about by the war, ‘the happy blue-eyed inhabitants now wandering helplessly or lying dead in the fields they had tended in peacetime.

James Alexander Logan Stewart of Alltrodyn is killed in the Battle of Frezenberg whilst 1502 souls perish with the sinking of the Lusitania.

An advert from the Cardigan and Tivyside Advertiser coercing men into enlisting in order to bring honour upon themselves by serving their King and country.
