The War. I 1 CAPTAIN A. G. E: TAYLOR, ABER- GYNON. We regret to announce the death in action of Captain A. G. E. Taylor, 3 Salisbury Road, Abercynon. Captain Taylor belonged to the 7th Battalion, Royal Fusiliers, which he joined immediately on the outbreak of war as a private. He was an old Queen Elizabeth's schodlboy, and his parents and sister reside at East- ville. Previous to the war he was employed at the Albion Colliery, Cii- fynvdd. He was a member of the Cynon Lodge of the R.A.O.B. Captain Taylor went through all the early fighting, and took part in the retreat from Mons. He was also at the Marne, the Aisne, and the Yser. At the last-named place he was wounded, and lost the first finger of his right haiul. On recovering he went to the Dardanelles, where in June, 1915, he was promoted to Lance-Corporal, and afterwards to Sergeant. In August he was made a Sergeant-Ma j or, and on the 6th of that month also he was awarded the Croix de Guerre for his bravery in holding a barricade when all the other men had been killed and wounded. He returned to England at the end of 1915 to recuperate from frost-bitten feet and enteric, after being for some time in a military hospital in Malta. Later he Arrived at a convalescent home in Bourne- mouth, and in a few weeks after- wards visited his wife and children at Abercynon. An interview with him appeared in the Leader at the ] time. In May, 1916, he again found himself in the firing line, and in October was awarded the Military Medal for gallant conduct on the night of the 15th and 16th September, 1916. Subsequently he received his commission, and was gazetted to his old regiment, being almost immediate- ly placed in command of his com- pany. He was conspicuous for his gallantry as an officer, and received the D.C.M. and the Military Cross, and we understand that he was re- commended for further decoration for gallantry on the 23rd of April last. He was in Bristol on leave about six weeks ago, and returned on the 13th of May, full of hope and in the best of health. The news of his death, after such a brilliant career, has been received with deep regret, not only by his relatives, but by his numerous friends. The photograph produced above was taken before Captain Taylor obtained his com- mission. His death took place on the 26t of May. His Commanding Officer has written as follows to Mrs. Taylor: —"May I be allowed to share with you in part, and offer my deep- est sympathy in the loss" you have suffered by the death of your hus- band. He was wounded in the front line trenches in front of Oppy on the night of May 25th, very shortly after we had taken over the line, and died at the Clearing Station at Aubegny on the night of the 26th of May, where he was buried in the military cemetery. His death is a great loss, not only to me but to all his men, all of us having the greatest admiration and respect for him, al- though I had only met him a few days previously. Our loss is still greater when men such as he are wanted so badly to encourage and show an example of fearlessness to the battalion." PRIVATE WM. HUMPHRIES. News reached Ynysybwl on Satur- day week that Private William Humphries, of the Canadian High- land Fusiliers, had been killed in action in France on Friday, the 8th inst., and was buried on the 9th. The deceased soldier was a son of Mr. William Humphries, 124 Robert Street, Ynvsybwl, and was a North Walian. After spending some years at Ynysybwl he emigrated to Canada four years ago, and worked in Saskatchewan and Alberta. He en- listed early in Mirch, 1916, at Ed- montown, Alberta, and came to this country and over to France last December. During his sojourn in France he had, like all his Canadian comrades, gone through some very heavy fighting. Pte. D. LAWRENCE, nSKIN. A Trying Ordeal. I This photo is of Private D. Lawr- ance, East Yorkshire Regt., Signal- ler, son of Mrs. Matthews, 50 Thomas Street, Miskin. He was wounded very badly in the shoulder at the battle of Arras on the 2nd of May. He crawled back to a dug- out, and 'there he lay for 20 hours. Then he attempted to get back to the British lines, and was again hit by a bulle't, this time on the foftt. Someone picked him up and carried him back to the rear. A fortnight later he was conveyed to Sheffield Hospital. He joined the Army when he was only sixteen years of age, Find has seen sen-ice in France for 21 months. All wish him a speedv recovery. Lance Corpl. W. R. EDWARDS, LLWYDCOED. ihis is a photo of Lance Corporal W. R. Edwards, son of Mr and Mrs David Edwards, of 3 Corner House Street, Llwydcoed. He enlisted soon after the outbreak of war. Prior to joining the Army he was employed at the Dyllas Colliery. Lance Corp. Edwards is now in hospital at Leeds having been wounded in France. He has also been awarded the Military Medal. The following is a letter from Lieut. General Sir Aylmer Hunter-Weston, K.C.B., D.S.O., M.P., Comma ding 8th Army Corps: To No 26565, Lance Corporal W. R. Edwards, loth (S.) Batt., Welsh Regt.

ABERAMAN HORSE SHOW PRESENTATION. The Committee of the above met on Tuesday of last week at the Com- mittee Room, Plough Inn, Aberaman. (where the show was first mooted;, for the purpose of presenting the secretary, Mr. Tfpm Rees, Castle Hotel, Aberdare, with a beautifully- inscribed set of silver tea service, supplied by the well-known firm of Thomas and Co., Jewellers, Aberdare. The chairman of the Committee, Mr. W. T. Howell, Solicitor, presided, and in presenting Mr. and Mrs. Rees* dwelt on the good qualities of Mr.. Rees as a whole-hearted secretary. The following took part in the pro-, ceedings:—Messrs. E. D. Lewis, J. Parfitt, and J. Bedford. Mr. H. A. Howells, the secretary pro tew., in the statement of accounts, said the Committee had after the holding of the last show given a cheque for five guineas each to the Aberaman Choral Society and to the Aberaman Free Library, and that recently they had given £10 to the Aberaman In- stitute War Heroes' Fund, and £ 2: each to the Abercwmboi and Cwm bach War Heroes' Funds, and they were able to present Mr. and Mrs. Rees with the substantial articles named. Mr. and Mrs. Rees ac- knowledged the gifts, and gave some recollections of incidents that had happened during their ten years' service.
MEMORIAL AT ABERPERGWM. A memorial tablet to the late Capt. Idris Williams, of Aberper- gwm and St. Donat's Castle, was dedicated by the Bishop of Llandaff at Aberpergwm Church on Monday evening. Much local interest was taken in the ceremony, the sacreci edifice being tilled. Among those present were the Hon. Mrs. God- frey Williams (sister-in-law of the deceased officer), Mr. and Mrs. Ogil- vy Spence, the Vicars of Hirwain and Resolven, and the officials of the colliery and the estate. The ser- vice was intoned by the Vicar (Rev. J. LI. Thomas, M.A.), the organist being Miss Hutchinson, and the choir, which rendered very effectively an appropriate anthem, was under theconductorship of Mt-. D. J. Harris. After the dedication the,, Bishop delivered an impressive ad- dress, m which he dwelt upon the heroism and the devotion to dutv of Captain Idris Williams, who, after serving his country \vith distinction in the South African war, gallantly fought in the present war and paid the great sacrifice. The tablet, which is of alabaster, bears the fol- lowing inscription <"In memory of £ d"sH. WdWs, who died June ord, 191o, age 36, from wounds re- ceived at Ypres. Fourth son of Mor- gan S. Williams, of Aberpergwm and St. Donat's Castle." Facing the tablet in the chancel is another of similar design to an uncle of the de- ceased officer, Captain George Wil- liams, who was killed in the Zulu war, in which he served on the staff of Sir Redvers Buller. The dedication was succeeded bv a confirmation service.
One hundred years ago it was con.. sidered a wonderful achievement for ten men to manufacture 448,000 pins a dav. Now three make 7,500,000 ping in the same time.
