Wythnos/Week 105: 4-10 Awst/August 1916

[English below]

Mae Cyngor Amaethyddol Cymru’n cynnal cyfarfod arbennig i drafod beth i’w wneud pan fydd y milwyr yn dychwelyd, a chyhoeddir ‘Gorchymyn Goleuadau (Cymru a Lloegr) 22 Gorffennaf, 1916’ yn y Cambrian News.

O dan ‘Local War Casualties’ cawn glywed am y colledion mawr dros y dŵr, gan gynnwys pêl-droediwr o dîm Tref Aberystwyth, ‘Tucker’; yr Is-gorporal James John Herbert Howard a’r Cloddiwr Tim M. Jones o Lwyncelyn – caiff ei fam glywed y newyddion trist ar 25 Gorffennaf, diwrnod ei ben-blwydd yn un ar hugain oed.

Tal-y-bont – Mae’r pentref yn pryderu ynglŷn â Dick Humphreys a Tommy Jones.

Ponterwyd – Mae’r Uwch-ringyll John R. Jones yn ennill y fedal filwrol am ei ddewrder.

Ceinewydd – ni chaiff neb fynd ar y Pier wedi machlud yr haul mwyach.

Aberporth – mae’r Preifat David Thomas wedi’i anafu unwaith eto.

Bydd yr elw o’r cyngherddau a gynhelir yn yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol yn mynd at achosion gwladgarol, ac mae rhywun dienw’n rhoi £5,000 yn rhodd i’r Llyfrgell Genedlaethol.

The question of what is to happen when the soldiers return is discussed at a special meeting of the Welsh Agricultural Council, and the Order cited as the ‘Lights (England and Wales) Order of the 22nd July, 1916’ is printed in the Cambrian News.

‘Local War Casualties’ reports on the heavy losses suffered from the death of Aberystwyth Town footballer ‘Tucker’, Lance-corporal James John Herbert Howard, and Sapper Tim M. Jones of Llwyncelyn, his mother receiving the sad news on the 25th July, his twenty-first birthday.

Talybont – Anxiety in the village as to the fate of Dick Humphreys and Tommy Jones.

Ponterwyd – Sergeant Major John R. Jones is awarded the military medal for gallantry.

New Quay – the Pier is no longer to be frequented after sunset.

Aberporth – Private David Thomas has been wounded again.

The proceeds from the concerts to be held at the National Eisteddfod will be donated toward patriotic causes whilst the Welsh National Library receives an anonymous gift of £5000.
