Wythnos/week 270: 5-11 Hydref/October 1919

[English below]

‘In Memoriam’ – mae Lizzie Williams a oedd wedi gweithio yn Ffatri Arfau Pen-bre ac a fu farw yn Aberteifi ym 1916 yn cael ei chofio gan ei mam a’i brawd.

Nodir yn y Cardigan and Tivy-side fod enw’r Preifat James Davies o Lechryd wedi’i hepgor o’r rhestr o arwyr sydd wedi cwympo.

Mae rhagor o filwyr Aber-porth yn cael eu dadfyddino: David John Jones ar ôl blynyddoedd lawer o wasanaeth gweithredol, Tom Hywel Davies ar ôl bod ar y môr am dros dair blynedd a John Daniel Jenkins ar ôl treulio llawer o’i amser yn Ffrainc a Gwlad Belg.

Yn Swyddffynnon, mae argymhellion y Pwyllgor Cofebau wedi’u mabwysiadu yn yr ystyr y dylid gosod ffenestr liw yn Eglwys Ystradmeurig a senotaff gwenithfaen ar sgwâr y pentref yn Swyddffynnon.

Yn Aberteifi cynhelir ”Cinio Heddwch” ar gyfer dros 50 o ddynion cyhoeddus mwyaf blaenllaw’r dref, ynghyd â’u gwragedd.

Dywedir bod dau sefydliad gwych Aberystwyth, -Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru a’r Brifysgol, wedi wynebu’r problemau anodd a gododd ar ôl i ryfel ddihysbyddu dynion ac arian y byd. Hefyd yn Aberystwyth, agorir arddangosfa o baentiadau’r arlunydd o Wlad Belg, M. de Saadeleer, yn yr Hen Ystafelloedd Ymgynnull (Daeth M. de Saadeleer o hyd i gartref yn ardal Aberystwyth ar ôl i’r Almaenwyr oresgyn ei wlad).

Mae ‘Hiraeth y Cardi’ gan Lloyd Rowlands yn gerdd a ysgrifennwyd yn Bab-el-Hadid ar Fedi 7fed ac mae’n mynegi ei hiraeth am ddychwelyd i’w gartref yng Nghymru.

Mae’r Bwrdd Amaeth wedi penderfynu rhoi’r gorau i’r cynllun ar gyfer rhoi hyfforddiant byr mewn canolfannau i gyn-filwyr cydnerth sy’n dymuno dod yn weithwyr fferm.

‘Colofn Gymysg’ – mae enwau fel Coedwig Mametz a Chefn Pilkem yn gyfarwydd i’r mwyafrif yn ogystal â rhai lleoedd eraill yn Salonica a Phalesteina. Bydd llawer o leoedd am byth yn gysegredig i’r teuluoedd hynny sydd wedi colli anwyliaid. Mae ‘Gwersi’r Gorffennol’ yn cyfeirio at y streiciau diweddar – mae’n drawiadol sut mae’r wlad wedi ymdopi â’r sefyllfa heb fawr o drafferth yn bennaf oherwydd y profiadau a’r problemau y bu’n rhaid eu hwynebu yn ystod blynyddoedd y rhyfel.

‘In Memoriam’ – Lizzie Williams who had worked at the Pembrey Munitions Factory and died at Cardigan in 1916 is remembered by her mother and brother.

It is noted in the Cardigan and Tivyside that the name of Private James Davies of Llechryd has been omitted from the list of fallen heroes.

More Aberporth soldiers are demobilised – David John Jones after many years of active service, Tom Hywel Davies having been on the sea for over three years and John Daniel Jenkins having spent much of his time in France and Belgium.

In Swyddffynnon the recommendations of the Monuments Committee have been adopted in that there is to be an insertion of a stained glass window in Ystrad Meurig Church and a granite cenotaph on the village square at Swyddffynnon.

In Cardigan a ”Peace Dinner” is held for over 50 of the foremost public men in the town, together with their wives.

The two great institutions of Aberystwyth, -the National Library of Wales and the University are reported to have faced up to the difficult problems which arose after war had drained the world of men and of money. Also in Aberystwyth, at the Old Assembly Rooms an exhibition is opened of paintings of the Belgian artist, M. de Saadeleer. (M.de Saadeleer on the invasion of his country by the Germans found a home in the Aberystwyth area).

‘Hiraeth y Cardi’ (The Yearning of the Cardi) by Lloyd Rowlands is a poem penned in Bab-el-Hadid on September 7th and expresses his longing to return to his home in Wales.

The Board of Agriculture has decided discontinue the scheme for giving short training at centres to able-bodied ex-servicemen who wish to become farm labourers.

‘Colofn Gymysg’ , such names as Mametz Wood and Pilkem Ridge are familiar to most as well as some other places in Salonika and Palestine. Many places will forever be sacred to those families who have lost loved ones. ‘Gwersi’r Gorffennol’ (Lessons of the Past’), refers to the recent strikes,- it being impressive how the country has coped with the situation with little trouble mainly due to the experiences and problems which had to be confronted during the war years.
