Radio Cymru recently broadcast a Welsh language programme about aspects of WW1. It featured the story of George Povey of Connah’s Quay who was shot at dawn in February 1915 for ‘Quitting his Post’. The story was researched for this website by Mavis Williams but in this broadcast it is Welsh speaking researcher, Keith Humphreys who helps to tell the story.
Watch and listen to Hannah speaking in a plenary session in the Sennedd. She tells the Welsh Assembly about our project.
Thank you Hannah, for telling what we do.
Thanks to Researcher Keith for pointing out this programme which looks like one we shouldn’t miss.
