Back in the fold
[italics] from Mr. David Gwynne Jones [/italics]

Sir, I have in my possession a letter, received sometime in 1946 I believe, from the committee of the Llanyblodwel Welcome Home Committee. The 70 of us who, in the words of the letter, "had answered our Country's call in its hour of peril" all received a cheque for £5.50 as a token of the parishieners' gratitude. Happily we all returned to the fold.

Yours faithfully,

DAVID GWYNNE JONES,
Wenallt, St Harmon Road,
Rhayader, Powys.
