Mae’r golofn ‘Local and other war items’ yn parhau a’r newyddion am filwyr unigol a sut y maent yn dod ymlaen tra fod Mr J. Phillips yn cyfeirio llythyr i Mr Llewelyn Williams ynglyn a ffurflenni cofrestri a  chenedlaetholdeb.

Mae’r heddlu yn cyflwyno petisiwn am Fonws Rhyfel.

Ac yn olaf mae Henry John Ballinger o Aberystwyth yn cael ei ladd yn y ffosydd yn Loos.

‘Local and other war items’ continues to report on individual soldiers and how they are faring whilst Mr J. Phillips addresses a letter regarding registration forms and Welsh nationality to Mr Llewelyn Williams, K.C., M.P.

Mae hanes Tiriogaethwyr Aberteifi’n parhau – maent bellach wedi symud i Angl, Sir Benfro.  Mae gwŷr ifanc tref Aberteifi’n ateb yr alwad i ymuno yn y fyddin, a phenodwyd Mr. W.B. Bickerton yn Swyddog Recriwtio.  Derbyniwyd adroddiadau fod yr Is-gapten E.W. Gower, Castell-malgwyn ar goll ar faes y gad.  Cyhoeddwyd nifer o gerddi Cymraeg am y Rhyfel.

The Cardigan Territorials story continues – they have now removed to Angle, Pembrokeshire.  Young men from Cardigan town and the district are answering the call to join up and Mr. W.B. Bickerton has been appointed Recruiting Officer.  Lieutenant E.W. Gower, Castell-malgwyn has been reported missing in action.  A number of Welsh poems have been published regarding the War.
