Wythnos/week 125: 22-28 Rhagfyr/December 1916

[English below]

Newyddion diflas o Landysul – bu farw Cyril Robinson, llanc 21 oed, o’r anafiadau a dderbyniodd yn y Somme. Cafwyd gwasanaeth coffa yn Aberystwyth i Preifat W.H. Jones a fu farw o dwymyn y cryd ar Ragfyr 1af.

Derbyniwyd y Groes Filwrol gan ddau ddyn â chysylltiadau â Sir Aberteifi,- Is-Gapten E.E. Thomas, cyn dderbynnydd arian ym manc Lloyds yn Aberteifi a Chapten Robert Neil sydd â chysylltiadau ag Aberystwyth.

Mae’r Cyd Bwyllgor Sefydlog yn derbyn mwy o geisiadau am drwyddedi . Daw’r rhain o Bwyllgor y Groes Goch yn Llanon; y Parch. TAP Davies, Ficer Llanychaearn; Mr E. J. Thomas, Cambrian House, Tregaron.

Ysgrifenna J. Islyn Jones i Preifat Tom Davies yn Ffrainc. Mae’n son am y tywydd gaeafol ac yn obeithiol bydd Tom yn derbyn y parsel a anfonodd ato yr wythnos flaenorol. Mae Gruffydd, brawd J. Islan Jones wedi listio ond nid oes newyddion arall o Gribyn. Mae wedyn yn cyfeirio at gais yr Almaen am heddwch ond nid yw’n credu fydd Lloegr yn cytuno i’r hyn fydd Yr Almaen yn debygol o ofyn amdano. Prin gall gredu fod heddwch yn agos.

Mae’r ‘Golofn Gymraeg’yn croesawu’r Ŵyl mewn barddoniaeth sy’n son am gyflwr y byd ac effaith y Rhyfel. Anogir pawb i fod yn llai gwastrafflyd dros yr Ŵyl ac i gofio am y bechgyn ar faes y gad.

Cyhoeddwyd bod Bathodynnau Rhyfel a thystysgrifau a roddwyd i ddynion di-grefft a lled-grefftus yn annilys a dylid eu trosglwyddo nol i’w cyflogwyr.

Sadly there is one loss recorded this week – that of 21 year old Cyril Robinson of Llandysul who has died of his wounds inflicted at the Somme. In Aberystwyth a memorial service is held for Private W.H. Jones who died from malarial fever on December 1st.

2 men with Cardiganshire connections have been awarded the Military Cross,- Lieutenant W.E. Thomas, formerly cashier at Lloyd’s Bank, Cardigan and Captain Robert Nevill who has connections with Aberystwyth.

Applications for permits are again received by the Standing Joint Committee. These are from the Red Cross Committee, Llanon; The Rev. T.E.P. Davies, Vicar of Llanychaiarn; Mr E.J. Thomas, Cambrian House, Tregaron.

J.Islan Jones writes to Private Tom Davies in France in which he mentions the wintry weather and hopes that Tom will receive the parcel he posted a week ago. J. Islan Jones’ brother, Gruffydd has enlisted but there is no news from Cribyn. He then comments on the Germany’s attempt at peace but believes England is not likely to agree to the terms which Germany will probably propose. He can scarcely believe that peace is imminent.

The ‘Y Golofn Gymraeg’ (the Welsh Column) greets Christmas in verse in which it proclaims that the blades of war continue to be crimson red  but the laws of the world are in the hands of the Lord. It continues with its message of peace and goodwill encouraging all to be less wasteful and to  celebrate Christmas in a simpler fashion than in previous times. The column ends with another verse which entreats all who celebrate Christmas in a peaceful Wales not to forget those men in the harsh battlefield.

War badges and certificates to unskilled and semi-skilled men are proclaimed invalid and are to be surrendered to employers.
