('' ?- ? I I- .? i? ?I ,? .1, iv I, ? ?l (, a u s. Progress is being made by the Ainon choir in preparation for the Sunday Service of Song to be held shortly. This hard working choir is making favourable head way under the con- ductorship of Mr Howell Phillip, A.T.S.C., and a good service is oon- fidentlji expected. In January of last year we gave some very interesting particulars of the experiences of Pte. Mike Dunphy, of the Lajicashires, who worked at the Gurnos Colliery prior to August. 1914, when he was called to the colours, Pte. Dunphy took part in the famous retreat from Mons, and was later wounded at La Bassee. In March he was again sent to the front, but on account of this wounded hand, he was attached to A.S.C., but nevertheless it appears that he took his regular spell in the front trenches. Some weeks ago, his many friends in the district,—for "Mike" was held in warm regard by all who knew him— were shocked and grieved to hear that the merry Irish lad had been killed— blown up by a "Jack Johnson" in com pany with five others. No little de- lighted surprise was toorefore exper- ienced by them when Pte. Dunphy ap- peared in the flesh in the place on Saturday last,—this time again wounded, and suffering from his gruell- ing experiences in trench and with transport. During nis short stay in the district, he is the guest of Mr Peter Meaney, Varteg Hill, and as it will be impossible for him to see all his old friends he desires to use this column to convey to them his warm regards. We think the case of Pte. Dunphy is one which should come under the con- sideration of the inhabitants of Ys- tradgynlais. It is true he is not a native of the place, nevertheless it was his home, and it would be a graceful and appreciative act if he were treated j as other local boys are treated who have borne the fatigues and faced the da.nger of the war on our behalf. Who will take the lead ? Now you Irish lads of the district, make a start, and you will be well supported.
