SOLDIERS' LETTERS ——————. —————— The following are from a hatch of letters j that we have received during the past ) few days from soldiers—all men from I houth Wales—now at the front. Each letter has been passed by the Press I I, Centsor:- 'Ferry Lad's Tip to the Boys I at Home. It The following letter has been received by Mr. S. II. Col will, of Court Sart, Britciifei-rv, fron-i bis son, Private Will Colwill, who writs from Flanders;- I Since I last wrote I have been in some I jolly hot shops and had very hard times. No doubt by this time you have seen the result of our work in the papers. It is all very well for the young chaps down homo to read the exciting news and lig successes, but by God! they don't Low I what it means. Although we are gaining a little now they mustn't think they are not needed. They are. Every available man ought to bo out here, as the more mon we have the quicker we will drive the enemy out. I alll not grumbling my-I self one bit, as it is not a. bit of use, and our duty lies here. I used to wonder at one time as to what IJm fighting for, but now I've seen the dirty devils and some '1 of their handiwork, and can only think what would become of old England if they could only get there. Belgium I wouldn't be compared to it. Never mind. they have the noose around their neck, and it is getting tighter every day—their doom is well on the way to be sealed. It's a sight to see our boys going to the trenches. I must &ay we aro all quite cheerful, and I can tell j you we have our enemy on the run now. I am in a bombing section now, and may get some risky work to do, but anf certain I shall get through O.K. Last week we wcn tout and threw bombs for an hour while the regiment on our right charged j the enemy, and we came off with a big success. You ought to fear the Germans yelling. It was like a madhouse lot open when they went over the parapet. What I with the shouting and the machine gun fire it was very hot, very exciting, and I felt like going after the Germans myself, but I expect I shall have my chance in a few days. Wo Tgere working last night not 200 yards from' the Ger- mans, and am glad to say did not have a man bowled over. We could see the Huns crawling about and popping at us, but we could not fire a gun, as it would only give our position away. Anyway, it is a < bon game! n I Lloyd George For Ever! I Writing home to his parents at Park- road, Gorseinon, Corpl. Gwilym Harries, gives a long and descriptive account of I the great event. "Our artillery," he writes, "was shaking the earth and under the continuous ava- lanche of shells everything as far as the eye could see was simply a mass of ruin. j However, the time for the charge came, and my regiment to a man were over the trenches with a loud shout of Lloyd Georg for ever: Bü,rh,d wire entangle- ments, however, barred the way, and the regiment sultered heavily. I saw Jack Williams fall. He was shot through the heart, and death must have been prac- tically instantaneous. At present I am i offering from trench fever, and in a con- II valescent home outside Boulogne. Here I met another Welshman in the person t of Freddie Hughes, Belgrave road, I I^ughor, and we enjoy many a chat. War, lile is rough, but we are quite fit and at! any rate we must see the job through." ) Corpl. Harries was 23 years old the first i n I day he entered the trendies, Aug. 18th. He was formerly employed as a collier at the Hake. i ————— <—————- I Their Hardest Fight Yet! The following letter has been r('('('lved I 'by Air. Kronen berg, of Ileathiiold-street, from his 8rm, PTlvate ?. Krbnenberg:— We wbat to another front of t he line 11 days ago, and it was very hard fight- ing, the hardest I have ever seen, and when wo went into the trenches the Ger- mans shelled us fur four solid days. The second night we made a big bayonet charge, and many cf our boys died on tho hId of glory, and our co!oupl died like a hero. I am lucky to come out cf it. But! now wo are dc?vn again to be B-ttpd with new Jc:th(s and everything we lost in the char?p, and, sooner or la?cr. we will go again to anc-th?r part of th? lin.

It. is very difficult to hring rations up for us when we were in tho trenches, because the Germans were shelling us with < coal boxes,' whiz- bangs,' and all kinds of shells."

IDOCTORS RESIGNATION I
DOCTOR'S RESIGNATION I j I Pontardawe Guardians Criti- iI [case PAedical Officer's Action. At the Pontardawo Guardians meeting on Thursday, Mr. H. J. Powell, J.P., pre- siding, the Clerk (Mr. Wyndhaiu Lewis) read a letter from Dr. T. E. Richards, district medical officer and public vac- cinator for the parishes in Ystradgynlais, resigning his position, as he was leaving the district, and suggesting that Dr. Wat- son, who succeeded him, should bo given the vacancy. Mr. D. n. Morgan moved that the, resig- nation be accepted, and Mr. J. W. Morgan seconded. Mr. John M. Da vies mentioned that Dr. Richards had not dealt in an open and straightforward inanner with the Guard- ians. About a month ago the doctor had written to the Guardians for a month's leave, and, apparently, he had gone to look for another practice at Bargoed. He thought the least that Dr. Richards could have done would have been to inform the clerk of his intention. It was decided to accept the reerigriatien, and advertise for a successor.
