Llanelly and the War. -1

Answering the Call.

Formation of the V.T.C.


Formation of the V.T.C. LOCAL CORPS WHICH DID USEFUL WORK. In any review of local war activities the formation and equipment of the Volunteer Training Corps must find a worthy place. This fine body of men was brought into being in June, 1915, and kept up its activities to the end. There was a splendid rally when the appeal was made, the inten- tention being to utilize the services of men who although over military age, were perfectly fit and capable of tak- ing up arms for the defence of their country. It was properly felt that such a force would prove invaluable in case of invasion by the enemy. The Corps was recognized as a military unit of H.M. Forces and underwent arduous training. The volunteers were usefully employed in various capacities and never failed to prove their real soldierly qualities.
