KIDWELLY NOTES. I te. Albert Richards, of the Grenadier Guards, third son of Mr and Mrs John Rich- aids, Quay House, Kidwelly, is spending a few days wiith his parents, and in an interview furnished our correspondent with the follow ing particulars relating to his experiences at the front. He left England with his regiment in October last and was sent forward to the trenches first at Ypres and afterwards nt La Bassee, wit ha short interval for rest at Meteron. The trenches, owing to the wet weather were in a frightfully muddy condition the men in the communication trenches being up to their waists in. mud. In the trenches proper little "dug-outs" enabled them to en- iinuaily engsr^etf H^re/gment was Mm- and counter-attacks being the order of the day. In an attack made on the German trenches at La Bassee on New Year's Day, Pte Richards was wounded in the arm with a dum- dum bullet which splintered the humerus and tore the muscles. He was also struck on the head the bullet grazing the right temple. On recovering consciousness) he managed to crawl back to the British trenches where he, with several comrades, was bandaged and then was aible to walk to the field dressing-station about two miles distant. From there he was con- veyed to Boulogne where he remained in hos- pital nine days and underwent nn operation to the arms. He was transferred to England and was again operated on in Warwick Hos- pital where he was detained for J1 week, after mhioh he was "Sent to Woodbastwick Hall, the residence of Mr John Gater, Conservative M.P. for Huntingdon, being finally discharged from hospital on February 27th. Private Richards is loud in his praises of the treat- ment accorded him in the hospitals and the convalescent home. Since leaving the latter lie has been spending some time at his home at Cwmamman, Aberdare, and came on to Kidwelly to see "the old folks at home" on Thursday last. He stated that the men in the trenches stifferk-,d -tintol,d sufferings (),,jng to the intense cold and many of his comrades were frost bitten. The fo::d supplied the troops was of good quality and plentiful and the men were treated with every consideration. Pte Richards does not hold a very high opinion of the German soldiers who gave him the im- pression that they were driven to the charge. In any case their attack lacked that dash which characterises the British charges. He is looking forward to returning to the front, but fears it will be a Jong time before his arm will have regained its former powers. He is c! I of the opinion that it will involve great sacri- fices of men on the part of the Allies to force their way to Berlin, but added with an entire absence of boosting "we are bound to win." Pte. Richards, who is a splendid specimen of the British Guardsman, has served 15 years in the famous Grenadier Guards, and saw service in the Boer IN-air. for which he holds the late Queen Victoria and King Edward medals. Mr and Mrs John Richards. Quay House, have every reason to be proud of the fact that foui of their sons, a son-in-law and a grand- son are with the colours. Beside Pte. Albert Richards, whose experiences arc given alxive, tliCM- eldest sen James, who has seen service for many years in India, is a corporal in the GGarrjson Artilery, and i&mt present sta- tioned in Ireland. Tne second son, William, who has served with the forces in India, is on the staff at the KingJMtfard VII. Hospital, Cardiff, while Jack, the youngest, is a private with tthe ljth Hussars in Bristol. Their 4 son-in-law, m. Thomas, is chief E.R.A. on one of the mine-sweepers, while the grandson, Charlie Shillum, Maesteg, a, son of P.C. Shillulll, ,ho was fatally stabbed some years ago at Barry Island is a private in the Glou- cester Light Infantry. A meeting of the Belgian Refugees Com- mittee was held in the Town Hall on Monday evening the 15th inst., Mrs H. E. Smart in the chair. The minutes of the last meeting were read, and signe4 as being a coirrect record. Coun. J. 1. Harries, Garreg Farm, handed in a sum of tl 15s 5d from the Mountain Dis- ) trict, and it was resolved to ask Miss K. Davids. Gordon terrace, and Miss Harris, of Croft terrace, to assist Coun. Harris in collect- ing the scattered aTea. The Treasurer. Ald. W. Widkins. reported that in aidtlitioii to the usual collections which continued satisfactory, the funds had received a Ciontri;lmtiowf.oom the Cinema Co. of £ 2 3s I tiel proceeds of entertainments at Ciiiist-nias time. *v The Secretary was instructed to convey the thanks of the Committee to the proprie.tors for their useful donation. Record was made of the fact that Messieurs Binet. Quoidbaeh, and Xizet. who were in regular employment, had conformed with the requirements of the Insurance Act by joining an approved society. y Mr S. H. Evans repotted Itaving interviewed Dr T. R. Griffiths, in the matter of medical attendance for the refugees. The doctor had promised to give his services free., and on the proposition of Mr Evans, seconded by Coun. H. AViUkins, a hearty vote of thanks was car- ried and ordered to be conveyed to him. A cheque of £ 5 10s was drawn in favour of i Mrs Smart to meet current expenses. The latest Kidwelly "boy" to join the colours is Mr Jimmy Loosmore, only son of Mr and Airs Robt. Ixmsmore, Mews. Bailey st.. who proceeded to Rhyl last week to the 17th Batt. Welsh Regiment, now under-going training there. Jimmy could ill be spared from the extensive business carried all by hv father and himself, but the country's cal proved too strong, and both father and eoi have the satislacticn or knowing that dH sacrifice has been made from a sfeflso (I patriotic duty. Good luck to our latest re emit. It is to be feared that no hopes can be en tertained fer the safety of Capt.J Edmunds whose vessel the was torpedoe< off Scarborough on the 99th i9nst. The 011I; known survivor paid 11 visit to Kidwelly las week, and related to Airs Edmunds what h knew, u liic liwas very little, of the disaster As stated in last week's "Reporter," Capt Edmunds had made his home in Kidwelly sine his marriage with the daughter of the late A1 W111. 7?andell, contractor, some 12 years ag(i l and during his visits, made at irregular intei vals. had made many friends, who now lamen V ) his tragic end with unfeigned sorrow. Every citizen, from the oldest to the youngest, with- out distinction of class or creed, mourns with with his bereaved wife and only daughter in the irreparable loss they have sustained. Young men of Kidwelly, do not you feel you have a duty to perform im the face of the diar bolicial crime which has brought to your very doors the horrible significance of the German threats of "frightfulness?" Is the death of your gallant townsman to go unavenged with- out any effort on your part ? Think the matter over seriously, and there can be but one answer to the question. »*# We congratulate Air A. P. Mansel on his election to the captaincy of the Tennis Club for the approaching season. _T.h", monthly meeting of the managers of was held in the Town nam tW.1 JTmon) ing the 16th inst., Capt. T. Gower, chairman, presiding. Air Dd. Gravel], Brynhyfryd, Mynyddygarreg. was appointro. Cihaiorman fQr the ensuing year, and the Rev W. C. Jenkins a former chaiirma-n of the oM School Board, vice-chairman. The retiring chairman was accorded a hearty vote of thanks for his ser- vices during his term of office. The Easter holidays for the schools were fixed from April 1s t to 12th. The celebrated film, "By the Kaiser's Orders," which will shortly be shown at the Cinema, will, we are informed by an authority on the sub ject, "make the whole town talk." The picture will give sidelights of the Kaiser's machinations with resultant unspeakable horrors. The Red Cross men had a parade on Sunday afternoon last. Mr F. Sheppard, who has voluntarily taken up the post of instructor, putting them through some valuable strertcher exercises. Several of the members intend offering themselves for foreign service. The "social" in connection with the local section of the No. 3 V.A.D. will take place on the week after Easter. Mr W. J. Wild is the. secretary, and Air F. Sheppard, treasurer of the committee having charge of the arrange- ments.
Church Act Repeal
Church Act Repeal. AIR LLEWELYN WILLIAA1S' ANXIETY. "Mr Llewelyn Williams, K.C., M.P., has addressetl a letter to Mi- David Williams, J.P. (chairman of the Llanelly Liberal Association, thanking him for his congratulations on his re-election to Parliament, and stating what he considers should be the attitude of the AVelsli AI.P.'s in regard to the Postponement Bill. Mr Llewelyn AVilliams writes;- "I am glad to say that the Government not only consented to postpone the consideratioo of the Bill, but they have invited the Welsih members into consultation, and we have al- ready discussed the situation, freely and frankly, with Mr Asquith, Air Lloyd George, and Air AlcKenna "Of course, nothing that the Government cun do can place the AVelsh Church Act in the position which it occupied before the Govern- ment's blunder. But we must face the facts. The have not only introduced the Postponement Bill, but they have actually passed it through all its stages in the House el L'brds. They are now, pledged to go for- waa;d with it, and they can pass it through the* House"or Commons over the heads Of the Welsh members. What should Welsh mem- bers do in the circumstances? "The chief anxiety of AYelshmen is that the Welsh Church Act, for which they have fought and sacrificed for so long, shall become opera- tive before it will be possible for a Tory Gov- ernment to repeat it; and my strong view is that Welsh members and people should direct their energies to this end. I believe that this object can be effected byt two amendnieaas to the first clause (a) The period of postpone- ment should *I)e ivdii(,M from six monthbs to three months after the termination of the war; (b) an alernative period should be added, 'or until the dissolution Of Parliament lifter the teri^natioM of the present war, whichever event sliall first occur.' "This would ensure that the "Act should1 become operative before a general election took place. if these modifications are accep- ted by the Government Mw danger of repeal will be sensibly decreased—nay, more, I be- Heve it will altogether disappear—i^jtere^f every grievance alleged by the elericMfelr will be removed, and substantial financial conces- sions AVill bo made to the Church by Clause 2. f: resent as much cp any the gratuitous re- opening of this question at this time I resent the grant of more concessions to a Church which has already been most generously treated I resent even more the treatment accorded to the Welsli members in a matter of such vital concern to their constituents. But J trust the Liberals of the Carmarthen Br.roif&hs A-ill w: tll me that, in spite of on) just and natural indignation, we should not adopt a non-possumus attitude, but en- deavour. as practical men, to do what is open to us to safeguard the passing of the AVelsh Church Act into operation."
