A Llwydcoed Officer Wounded. Llwydeoed was represented at the re- cent engagement at Gaza by that gal- lant young officer, Sec. Lieut. W. J. Hodges, the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. F. Hodges. Nant Goch, Llwydcoed. As a private he joined the Sportsmen Battalion at the commencement of the war; was then transferred to the 5th Welsh, where he gained his Lieutenant- cy. Later lie was drafted with his regiment to Gallipoli, and there served for three months, at the end of which time he contracted fever. When re- turning aftei* the engagement at Gaza, carrying a report to Headquarters, a bullet from the enemy penetrated his leg. He was then transferred to the hospital at Cairo; the bullet was ex- tracted and now he is progressing very favourably. In a letter received" from him by his parents at the end of last week he gives a short but a very vivid account of the engagement, whence his platoon captured several prisoners, in- cluding a few Germans. At this en- gagement the toll of casualties among the officers of his Regiment was heavy, fourteen being wounded and two were killed. The villagers of Llwydcoed feel thankful and happy that their young officer escaped so well, and their hearts pour out their best wishes for his future military welfare. When he returns home a royal welcome awaits him.
