As part of Cofia Abergele Remembers, one of the websites I produce AbergelePost.com, worked with local historian Andrew Hesketh and Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan learners to list and record the names in audio of all the people of Abergele (a seaside town in north Wales) and surrounds who participated in WWI. I’m proud to have produced this project in my hometown. Click the triangle at the top-lift of this Soundcloud widget to hear part of the audio recording.
Here’s a list of students who made the recordings:
We’re grateful to Andrew Hesketh and the Emrys students for this touching tribute.
On 11 November 1918, ‘the war to end all wars’ came to an end. Abergele is remembering this on Remembrance Sunday. The AbergelePost website has published many articles about WWI (keep clicking the Older Posts link at the bottom to see all the biographies and articles)
We join with the whole nation, 100 years after its end, in remembering those who participated and those who died in the First World War.
