I Talgarth Boy. I I IllES FROM WOUNDS. I Oil Saturday morning, new, was received of the dath from wound- of Pte. W. F. D. Williams, only son of .Mrs Williams, grocer. High Street, Talgarth. The de- ceased was a young Talgarthian who at the outbreak of war was a clerk in the United Counties Bank, at Aber- gavenny. lie joined the Bankers Battalion, and after- wards was transferred to the 22nd Battalion, Royal Fusiliers. He left for France last October. On Sun- day, February IStli, lie was admitted to one of the casualty clearing stations, suffering from severe wounds in the chest, from which he died on the following morning. Pte. "Willie" Williams as he was familiarly known locally, wa, very highly esteemed by everyone in Tal- garth. Although somewhat retiring, lie was always bright and ch, possessing a wonderfully kindly, gentle nature, with the result that he was dearly loved by all his companions. From childhood he was connected with the Congregational Church and Sunday School. a clean, clear character respected not only in his native town but by his employers also. Very much sympathy is felt for his mother (who is a widow) at the death of her only son, who has paid the great price at a time when she most needed his encouragement. Pte. Williams is, we think. the eighth from Talgarth district to lay down his life for his country.
