Wythnos/Week 36: 6-12 Ebrill/April 1915

[English below]

Cyhoeddir apêl am danwyr sy’n meddu ar addysg ddigonol, a gyrwyr sydd wedi arfer â cheffylau.

Roedd si ar led fod llong danfor U37 wedi’i suddo gan long fasnach o Lanelli, ‘Lizzie’, a soniwyd fod llawer o ddiwinyddion brwd ymhlith y Magnelwyr o Sir Aberteifi oedd dan hyfforddiant yng Nghaerdydd.

Mewn llun gwelir chwip o ganwr organ geg yn perfformio, ac mae disgyblion ysgol Ffynnonbedr yn Llambed yn dal i gyfrannu at Gronfa Plant Amddifad Gwlad Belg.

An appeal is received for artillery men such as gunners who needed to be of sufficient education, and drivers who are accustomed to horses.

The enemy submarine the U37 was believed to have been sunk by the Llanelli trader ‘Lizzie’, and it was reported that many of the Cardiganshire Battery training in Cardiff were keen theologians.

An accomplished mouth organ performer is pictured during a recital whilst the pupils of Peterwell school in Lampeter continue to contribute towards the Belgian Orphan Fund.
