BRECKNOCKS FROM I ADEN. I TWENTY-THREE TERRITORIALS I ARRIVE AT CARDIFF. 1 About twenty menibers of the Brecon- shire Territorials arrived on Tuesday at the Albany-road Military Hospital, Car- diff, invalided from Aden, where they had been doing garrison duty since last October. In conversation wiih the men, they made it abundantly clear that they never want to see Aden again. The heat was enough to kill a cast-iron man," de- clared a member of the Ystradgynlais company, and there were very few cf the battalion who did not spend part, of the time in hospital. It is a fine place for reducing weight, I can tell you." One is not permitted to give the full details of the brush the battalion had with the Turks at Lajeh, but when the full story of this incident is written it will be found that the Breconshires did their duty nobly in this distant corner of the Empire. Their march across the desert, scorced by the rays of a tropical sun, and their encounter with a force of 13,000 Turks are among the incidents of the story which the men will be able to relate to their friends. As we already knew from the published information, on the return journey from Lajeh to Aden, fighting nearly all the way, 15 <d the battalion died and found soldiers' graves in the desert, among them being Private Cyril Isaac, the second son of Major W. T. Isaac, for- merly quartermaster of the battalion, and Private Ernie Green, a well-known footballer, and a son of a former sergeant- major of the Gallant 24th. ;,0 cancers have returned home, namely, Capt. Ithel Thomas and Capt. Musgrave, and are now in a London hos- pital. Sergeant Fred Walters (Brecon) and Corporal J. Jones (Llanfyrnach) have also been eent to London. Private D. J. Jones, Ystradgynlais, and Private' Edwards, Crickhowell, both of them suf- fering from wounds, were left behind at Alexandria, and Pte. Wheeler,, Brecon, had the misfortune to lose the boat while calling at Malta. The following is a list of the men, to- gether with their addresses, who are now in the Cardiff military hospitals:— Private C. Baylis, Ystradgynlaia. Private J. Bevan, Hay.
