PONTYRHYL. Died From Wounds.—Mr. and Mrs. William Edwards, 23 Bryn Cottages, Pontyrhyl, have re- ceived two telegrams, the first from Shrewsbury, and the second from the War Office, London, stating that their son, Cpl. Wm. Edwards, Srd Welsh Regiment, was wounded on the 20th of November, and died on the 25th November, in France. He joined the Army six years ago, being one of the brave heroes who left for France at the outbreak of war. He was wounded at the battle of Ypres. In his young days he was a very faithful attendant at Tyla- gwyn Baptist Church, and a devoted member of the Sunday School, Band of Hope, and took an active part in the singing. Prior to enlistment he worked as a miner at Resolven, where he leaves a widow and one child to mourn his death. A brother-in-w of Mr. W. Edwards —Pte. Charles Rees, 2nd Gloucester Regiment,, who hailed from Goodridge, Ross, Hereford- shire—was killed in action in the battle of Ypres on the 7th November, 1915. Another son- in-law—Pte. Humphrey Williams, Welsh Regi- ment. who hailed from Tonypandy-was killed in .action at the Dardanelles. Abel Seaman W. Brain, son of Mrs. Edwards, has served in the Royal Navy for the past fifteen years. Much sympathy is extended to the bereaved family.
