I I A FVE YEARS' RETROSPECT.j
A FVE YEARS' RETROSPECT. The present Issue of the "Star." we believe, will possess a special in- West for every Llanellyite. In it we Have tried to tell the story of Llan- elly's achievements during the last five memorable years. The record may not be complete in every parti- dilar. Indeed it would be impossbls to gather up all the manifold threads -in the varied activities of the town jtfnce those fateful days of August, 1914. But, however incomplete it may be, we feel that the narrative will be read with pride and satisfac- tion by the citizens of Llanelly. It & a wonderful story of achievement I in many fields of national service and as such, reflects credit upon the community as a whole. From time to time, fragmentary details have been made public showing what the people of Llanelly have done towards meeting a grave national emergency but nevar before has any attempt been made to give in something like its entirety what the town has accom- plished in providing Men, Money, and Munitions for the defence of the country. ¡ Judged from any point of view, we have a record that will compare fav- ourably with that of any other town in Great Britain. Llanelly has laid costly sacrifices on the national altar. It has given of its best and bravest to preserve inviolate the shores of the fatherland. The men on the battle- fields and on our battleships, the men at home in our busy factories and the women who came forward to fill the places of their brothers at the lathes and in the offices, all played their 'part in bringing about the victorious Peace which we are this week cele- brating. Our joy today however, is chastened by the knowledge that of the thousands of our gallant towns- men who rushed to the colours, near- ly five hundred have made the su- preme sacrifice. They helped to win victory but it is not permitted to them to join in the celebration of Peace. We pay homage to their memory—the honoured dead-and in our rejoicings, will not forget that it is to them that we owe all that we have today and all that we hope for the future. In regard to Llanelly's material con- tribution to the national cause it is a matter of pride to recall that coliers steelworkers, tinplaters and engineers worked at high pressure to meet the enormous demands for coal, shell steel, tinplate cases, and machinery ,and engines of all kinds. To Llanelly also belongs the distinction of having established one of the most efficient shell factories in the country. So Satisfactory were the results here that the Government authorized the I addition of a Rectification Factory on an adjoining site. Another note- worthy fact is that thousands of tons of Llanelly-made steel were supplied to the French Government for making ,Into shells. To sum up, in the three great requisites for the successful carrying on of war,—men, money, I and munitions, Llanelly did not fail the State. What remains is for us to see to it that the great sacrifices made shall t b not be in vain.
IBoy's Escapade I
I Boy's Escapade GOES TO LIVERPOOL WITH STOLEN MONEY. The story of a young boy's remarkable escapade was told at the Juvenile Court yesterday, when Wm. David Morgan (12), 18, Hedley terrace, was charged with stealing JE4 10s. in cash and also a leather liurss, belonging to Daniel Mor- gan, his adopted father. Mrs. Morgan, 18, Hedley terrace, said that the boy was her adopted son. On Sunday, June 8th, she had left money to the value of £ 4 10s. in a drawer in the kitchen, and at about 11.30 p.m. the same day it was missing. The drawer was locked in the morning, as it was also in the evening when she discovered the loss. The boy had left the house at about noon that day and didnot return until noon on the 10th. I P.S. George stated that at about 3.30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10th, he saw de- p. m on Tuesda- fendant at his house, and in the presence of his father and mother charged him with stealing the money. When cautionad defendant said:- "I took the money. I opened the drawer with a key I found in my father a pocket. Myself and two other boys then went down to Allegri's shop to get a cooler each, for which I paid with a 10s. note. We then took a ohar-a-bano to Swansea and slept that night (Sunday) m a railway carriage. On Monday we went to Neath and spent the day in Neath Park, and caught the 6.50 train to Liverpool. We left Liverpool by the 11.50 train for Cardiff, where we booked for Llanelly, arriving here between 9 and 10 on Tuesday morning, afterwards going down the beach. I paid one of the boys' fare from Swansea to Liverpool and back to Llanelly." The Presiding Mf^istrate (Mr. F. R. Nevill) commented upon the extreme seriousness of the offence, but allowed for the boy's youth and bound him over in I the sum of E5 to be of good behaviour for 12 months.

He followed his brothers as soon as the military authori- ties would accept him. This gallant band included Fred, Sidney, Gilbert, Arthur,. Harry (died of wounds) and David John, the last named serving in the Navy.
