WW1 Requests!

We are looking for household items that would have been used in the Garw Valley in the 1910s to 1920s, e.g. washing boards, tin baths or any games that would have been played by adults or children in that period. We would like to photograph items or borrow them for our exhibition in 2014.

We are researching a Sergeant Richard Mathias who served with distinction in the Welsh Guards in the First World War. At one time he lived in Pont Y Rhyl and also later lived in 3 Waunbant , Pontycymer (now the fish shop). If anyone knows any details of this brave soldier and what happened to him after the war please could you contact us on our website or phone 01656870830
