I BLACKMILL. Friends of the Soldiers.-A meeting was held at Paran Chapel on Wednesday evening last week under the auspices of Blackmill and Glyn- ogwr Soldiers' and Sailors' Welfare Committee, when Gunner Tom Jones, caretaker of the Og- more and Garw Isolation Hospital, was ac- corded a welcome home upon his return from France on a short furlough. Gunner Jones has. I been employed at the Hospital for a number of years, during which time he has made himself very popular through his kind and obliging disposition, and has made himself many friends amongst the villagers, who were all extremely plea,se,d to see him looking so well. He volun- teered for service upon the outbreak of war, and was rejected. Soon after, he again offered his services, and upon being accepted, he joined the Royal Field Artillery, and has spent a- period of two years in the fighting line.—Rev. W. Paran Griffiths addressed the meeting, and then presented Gunner Jones with a cigarette- case as a memento of the occasion. Further addresses were delivered by Messrs. E. Brad- ford, John Perkins, T. John (Llan Farm), D. H. Thomas (Pantynawel), Tom Evans, A. H. Jenkins, and Mrs. Goldsworthy. A letter was sent by Mr. J. Lang (secretary), stating that he was indisposed, and expressing regret that he was unable to have the pleasure of according a welcome home to Gunner Jones in person. The meeting was concluded by the singing of a hymn.
