A CARDIFF CYMRO AT WAR

Wales was a melting pot at the start of World War I and some soldiers
from Wales had a foot in both of the prevailing cultures, Welsh and
English. This article uses evidence drawn from the wartime letters
of Dewi David from Cardiff to reflect on the experiences of the
Welsh in the British Army during World War I and Welsh attitudes to
language, identity, their homeland, and the values of Empire.
