Wythnos 46/Week 46: 13-19 Mehefin/June 1915

Yr wythnos mae O.C. Harries, haearnwerthwr, yn hysbysu nad yw’n gwerthu offer Almeinig.

Mae’r alwad i listio yn parhau a phwysleisir dyletswydd pawb i wneud eu rhan.

Cyfeirir y joc at waharddiad alcohol.

Mae Prif Gwnstabl Williams yn annog ei ddynion i listio a gweler pwt bach am 18 o wyr Mr E. Bateman.

Lladdwyd John Watkin Evans ym mhrwydr Aubers.

This week O.C. Harries, ironmonger and implement agent assures his customers that German goods are out of the question.

The call to enlist continues stressing the duty to do your bit.

The Welsh joke refers to the banning of alcohol and Tom’s response that he will not touch absinthe (as given up in France) or vodka (as given up in Russia). He’ll drink beer!

Chief-constable Williams encourages his men to enlist and although not Cardiganshire-related (apart from the fact that it’s reported in the Cardigan and Tivyside Advertiser) I couldn’t resist the little snippet which refers to the 18 serving  grandsons of Mr E. Bateman.

John Watkin Evans is killed in the Battle of Aubers.



19 June 1915

John Watkin Evans of Llanarth, aged 27. Private, Gloucestershire Regiment
