EMPIRE DAY AT ABERGAVENNY. It To the Editor of the Abergavenny Chronicle." I DEAR SIR,—Will you kindly allow me to state that Empire Day will be celebrated at Aberga- venny by holding a grand concert in the T >wu Hall. Mr. F. Mills, D.L., J.P., Llwyndu Court, has kindly consented to take the chair. We are to be favoured with a visit of the celebrated Cymric Male Voice Choir, of Blaina (conductor, Mr. J. C. Saye, A.R .A.M.). This is a really first- class combination of voices, and most of the choir have toured the United States several times. Amongst them are the well-known tenor, Mr. Gwynne Jones (a survivor of the Lusitaua: I and Mr. George Price (baritone), of the Roval Gwent Choir American Tour. The choir will give the complete programme, consisting of choruses, solos, duetts and quartettes. The whole of the proceeds are to be devoted to three deserving objects. Appeals have been made for funds to assist the good work being done at the Welsh Hospital at Netley. This institution is maintained entirely by voluntarv subscriptions from Wales, and funds are re- quired to continue the good work. The RS.P.¡ C.A., which has had the entire charge of looking after the welfare of the whole of the sick and wounded horses of the British Army, are asking for help to carry on 'this noble work. Then last. but not least, comes the appeal for funds for our sailors. These gallant "fdlows have protected our shores, kept open the routes for our mer- chantmen to bring food supplies to this island, and also, night and day, have kept strict watch for the German Fleet. We feel that an effort should be made to show our appreciation for these gallant defenders of our shores. In connection with the concert a Flag Dav will be held in Abergavenny and district, tor the same funds. This is being organiser by the headmasters and headmistresses of the Council schools, assisted by the staffs. Messrs. Straker, Son & Chad wick are holding an auction of articles which have been given for this effort, and Mr. Chadwick will be pleased to receive further gifts for this sale Abergavenny has (lone well, and 1 have to thank them for it. I feel sure these appeals have only to be made known to receive a liberal and generous response. I, therefore, desire to appeal again to the generosity of the residents of Abergavenny and district tc give all possible support to this special effort, as the whole of the proceeds are to be given to the objects named. The Cymric Choir are also giving their svrvices. Thanking you in anticipation. Yours very trulv. T- ,'1 Z. WHEATLEY, I T o wu I I all, 11 A V OR. I May 11, 1916. A
