Llythyrau o'r Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf

A Heritage Lottery Fund-sponsored community project, Aberystwyth at War 1914-1919: Experience, Impact, Legacy, brought some of the town’s war stories back to life using letters and other evidence.

One of the most intriguing that we have uncovered so far is that of Dot, a university student, and Billy, an army captain, who sent each other love letters during his deployment.
