Welsh Poets - among others . . .

A huge thank you to Rob Phillips from the National Library of Wales Welsh Library On-line Site who sent me details of their on-going project:

"Our project is a mass digitisation project funded by JISC and the Welsh Government and which includes Aberystwyth University, Bangor University, Cardiff University, Swansea University, the University of Wales Trinity St David, People's Collection Wales, the Archives and Records Council Wales, BBC Cymru Wales and the National Library of Wales. We aim to digitise over 200,000 pages of newspapers, magazine, manuscripts, archives and photographs along with 500 minutes of audio and audio visual content related to the experience of the people of Wales during the First World War."

Thank you Rob - definitely one to watch.

While we are on the subject of Welsh Poets, I should also like to thank Gwyn Parry for his efforts on my behalf.

I have also read with great enjoyment the book "Out of the fire of hell  Welsh experiences of the Great War 1914 - 1918 in poetry and prose" by Alan Llwyd which is extremely inspirational.
