Bagillt Memorial

Bagillt War Memorial 001

The Bagillt War Memorial is inscribed with a verse by the Bard Ellis Evans (Hedd Wyn), who was also killed during Word War 1.

Mae’r hen delynau genid gynt

Ynghrog ar gangau’r helyg draw,

A gwaedd y bechgyn lond y gwynt,

A’u gwaed yn gymysg efo’r glaw.

Translation

The harps that once could help our pain

Hang silent, to the willows pinned.

The cry of battle fills the wind

And blood of lads–it falls like rain.
