Copy of a handwritten letter (date unknown) documenting the First instalment towards building the Memorial Hall, Llanrhystud. The Memorial Hall was finally built in 1927, with a grand opening where the whole villager turned out, as documented in Welsh Gazette November 7, 1929:

At three o’clock a procession was formed at the bridge, and marched to the hall. The clergy and ministers took the lead and were followed by the school children, in charge of Mr J. Phillips, C.M., and the assistant teachers; relatives of the fallen, ex-service men, and the general public. All the village had turned out, and the event was favoured with fine, sunny weather.

Bazaar was held at the National School where over £200 was realised, this being the first instalment towards building the Memorial Hall.

The names of the ladies who were frequently mentioned for their hard work were:
Nurse M. Lewis, Lois
